Abstract [en]

In early June of 2011, co-author Goldhahn was contacted by a former student who had discovered that a bronze spearhead was for sale on the Swedish on-line auction site Tradera. The web site informed potential buyers that the spearhead of Valsømagle type been purchased at an auction in Västervik in Tjust, a town situated in Southeast Sweden. Use-wear analysis has showed that the spearhead may have been used multiple times and been subject to considerable transformational repairs. Analyses also showed that the spearhead was most likely used multiple times in heavy combat.
