A spear with a truncated cylindrical bamboo shaft, and a barbed wooden head hafted with plant material and adhesive binding. The barbs are convexo-concave, carved out of solid, and in a single row pointing shaftwards. There are traces of pigment, and the proximal end is hafted with wool string and adhesive. There is a cream label with scalloped edges which reads "No / 70". Three barbs are broken, the shaft at the proximal end is missing, and there are longitudinal splits in the shaft.
