Material : dark brown flint with areas of white inclusions.

Size : 42.3 x 13.8 x 3.6 mm.

Age : Mesolithic, ca. 4000 to 10,000 BC

Origin : North West Africa.

Condition : intact except for a fraction of a mm missing from the tip, but it looks like the tip was chipped when it was in use, not recently.

All though commonly called arrow points, it is probable these points were use mounted on the small spears thrown with an atlatl (spear thrower).  Similar points are found across North Africa but this point came from a group found in the Western part along the Morrocan and Algerian border.
