PhD commission

Here are the first three arrows complete for the PhD student working on osteoarchaeology.

The arrowheads specified were a MoL Type 1, which were in use from around the 10thC, so to keep the arrows different from the other three (which will be later medieval) I made them in an Anglo-Saxon style.

The nocks are left bulbous instead of using horn inserts, and the shaftment below the fletchings is reduced in diameter in order to accept the thicker glue. The glue is made from pine resin and charcoal, applied hot and the swan feathers bound over it using flax.
