A handful of Arrowheads

The above shown Arrowheads were used by Alexander the Great 

Arrows flew in primordial battles like the topical bullets do nowadays. These Arrowheads were used by Alexander the great, when the Warrior and his men captured most of the recognized world. These arrowheads were unearthed in Macedonia. Their tips comprise three spiky surfaces.

Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) was the king of Macedonia, a state in northern ancient Greece. He succeeded his father; Philip II of Macedonia. He was trained by Aristotle- (father of Political Science). At the age of 30, he had created one of the largest Empires of the ancient world. He was undefeated in battle and is considered one of the history’s most successful combatants. He invaded India in 326 BC, but was ultimately forced to turn back at the demands of his soldiers. Alexander died in Babylon in 323 BC.
