Luristan bronze comes from the province of Lorestan, a region situated in the area of modern South-Western Iran. In ancient times a number of nomadic populations, such as the Medes, the Kassites and eventually the Persians, settled in the area. The skilled Ancient Persian craftsmen developed great skill in bronze working, producing some of the finest weaponry then available, including these arrowheads.
