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.
