Default Medieval Arrowhead Typology

There have been a few efforts at arrowhead typologies. As I recall, the best known was from early work at the London Museum (Medieval Catalog, 1940). Oliver Jessup has here updated that work with a more representative sample. This is now the basic reference on the subject.

His references are very valuable.

Thank you for posting this Ed. You're right on published material on this topic, I cant really think of any offhand, so this is indeed very valuable data.
Extremely interesting subject and really has my interest!

I'd very much like to see examples of these, they must come up often in excavated battlefields. It does seem that some time ago there was some material on excavations at a site from the crusades, and the remains of a horseman, and the horse were uncovered, with arrowheads from both still in place.

Jim, I have access to a University database and might be able to uncover the original paper if you can provide me with a bit more detail.
