Abstract

the UCL javelin ispart of the conspicuous heritage of antiquity brought to London by Petrie from the Palestinian site of Tell el-‘Ajjul. UCL javelin head 2006/19, sharing common features with a series of leaf-shaped specimens , may be convincingly attributed to a distinguished type attested in Southern Levant during Early Bronze IVB. It seems strongly distinctive of a group of funerary equipment, which may be attributed to EB IV warriors. Moreover, the appearance of javelins, and especially of the leaf-shaped type during the Early Bronze IVB should be reconsidered in regard to the introduction of new technologically advanced skills and to the spreading of new weapon types.
