Arrowheads of this type have been recovered across many different ancient cultures inhabiting the Anatolian and Near Eastern regions during the Iron Age and were used in battles and for hunting.
Anatolia, also known in antiquity as Asia Minor, was located in the Anatolian Peninsula, part of modern Turkey today. It is one of the first regions to have boasted bronze production, much like Luristan culture in modern day-Iran. Arrowheads of similar style were popular across Transcaucasian civilisations, dating from the 1st millennium onwards, and have been recovered in burials’ excavations.
