Object Name:
Arrow
Description:
Steel tipped arrow.
Comments:
An arrow with a sharpened steel head was used for hunting or war. A good arrow was straight and had long, stiff feathers called"fletching." The feathers enabled the arrow to fly straight. Like the steel head, feathers were held to the shaft with sinew. It took much time and skill to craft a good arrow.
