Specialist Dr. James Dilley produces replicas from the European Stone Age and Bronze Age for private collections, museum displays, TV props and educational handling sessions. Ancient Craft prides itself on its historical accuracy, therefore each replica has been carefully researched and expertly reproduced based on archaeological evidence.



AncientCraft’s Arrow Replicas are made using authentic tools such as deer antler tines and copper pressure flakers (for early Bronze Age arrowheads). Though the full arrows can be loosed from a bow and cause injury if used irresponsibly, they will probably break upon impact with a tough surface. It is not recommended they be used on a compacted straw archery target as they do not have the same material resistances as carbon fibre arrows or steel tipped ‘Medieval’ arrows.


If you have a specific replica you require that is not listed on the AncientCraft shop, please let us know.

“For all of our historic replicas that I use with schools on site at La Hougue Bie and within classrooms, James has made axes, flint, polishing stones, axes and they are absolutely wonderful teaching aids as well as being beautiful objects. He has made objects that are particular for our island, such as using local dolerite rock to make a polished axe.”
