That is a nice find. Mind boggling to imagine what the world was like when it went to ground. Fascinating to wonder what it was shot at.
Live long and prosper.

May not have been used. The barbs have a tendency to break when they are being made especially with such deep notches. But it's nice to imagine what was for lunch.

yes. That was entirely my vibe. I'll have a main of Aurochs with a side order of wild pig and pine nuts.
Live long and prosper.

An eyes only non metallic find, that all Metal Detectorists would love to find.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
