Lisnacrogher Spear Shaft

Postby Colin McGarry on October 6th, 2017, 10:47 pm

So I've seen a few references to a spear-shaft found at the Lisnacrogher crannog excavation, with a bronze butt attached but no head, about 8ft long. I was wondering if there's anything else we know, if it's still sitting around somewhere, or if there's pictures of the shaft floating around somewhere? Specifically I'm looking for the type of wood and if there was a taper, but any more information would be good!

Thanks in advance
