Zulu Javlin Empty
PostSubject: Zulu Javlin   Zulu Javlin EmptyMon 23 Mar 2009 - 19:05

This unusual arrow-headed spear would probably have been used as a javelin. It is one of a number of weapons - including spears, clubs and swords - collected by Major Aylmer H.T.H. Somerset (1835-1882) of the Rifle Brigade from the Third Anglo-Asante War in Ghana in 1873-4 and during the Ango-Zulu War of 1879. It is likely that Major Somerset retrieved this spear with several other items from the field during or after the Battle of Isandhlwana in 1879.
