Spearhead, fragmentary blade, length now 35cm, and in very poor condition. This appears to be the remains of the spear illustrated in the KAS catalogue, with original length 53cm. A long straight-sided blade, with short socket.X-ray no. 44: On the one remaining intact shoulder there appears the inlaid motive resembling an exercise in step-pattern cloisonné, but conceivably a maker's or owner's mark, c. 5 x 5 mm
