Makale özeti ve diğer detaylar.
Anatolian Seljuk period is the most underrecognized period of the Turkish History of Archery. The data in respect of war instruments of this period comprise an ignored group of finds at the excavations of the medieval Turkish Period. In this paper, a discussion on a group of arrowhead obtained during the Medieval Turkish Period excavations is first attempted. Kubad-Abad Palace which is one of the best preserved palaces of the Anatolian Seljuk period holds a rich group of arrowheads. The arrowheads captured during the Kubad-Abad excavations show close similarities to arrow types identified in the medieval Arab and Mamluk leaflets. Besides main types of square, flat and circular shaped arrowheads, various subtypes can be ascertained. In the light of Kubad-Abad finds, this study aims to both introduce Anatolian Seljuk arrowheads and make a preliminary assessment in regard to terminological aspects based on coeval references of the period involved. In addition, a proposal with reference to typology of the medieval arrowhead is suggested.
