Child's toy iron spearhead, length 13.3xm, but tip broken. Small but thick, blunt edged blade, with split socket with wood remains.See Chartham Down grave 39 for mention of a child's toy spearhead and the (lost) M 6975 toy spearhead listed with the Dis-associated material for Chartham Down. Thought the line drawing for this object does not resemble the sketch and antiquarian drawings for the Chartham Down spearhead. – D.H.
