Bronze Age barbed & tanged flint arrowhead (NR1.56GS)
An insight into the prehistory of the Kingsholm area is this barbed and tanged flint arrowhead. It was found in 1987 during archaeological excavations ahead of the building of the Richard Cound BMW car dealership on the corner of Kingsholm Road and Denmark Road. It dates from the Bronze Age, around 4000 years ago, and has a broken tip and barb, so was probably lost in a hunting expedition. It is currently the oldest archaeological find in Kingsholm.
