During the Middel and Late Neolithic, small masterpieces of flint technology have been found in Southern Scandinavia . This is a “Pitware Culture Arrowhead D -Type with three seams, belonging to the younger part of the Pitware Culture (3300-2300 BC) of South Sweden . These artifacts were trimmed from three sides. A number of them have toothed edges.
These arrowheads were made with an advanced pressure flaking technique, where small flakes of flint are removed with a pointed, hand-held tool. Arrowheads appear as stray finds scattered over the landscape, but are sometimes also found at settlement sites and in graves. Worked arrowheads were used throughout the Dagger Period and until the Late Bronze Age, when they were outcompeted from arrowheads of metal.
