The corpus of copper alloy and iron arrowheads from the Middle Iron Age capital on the Kerkenes Dağ in Central Turkey is presented together with a discussion of relevant comparative material of the same period from other sites in Turkey. The Kerkenes arrowheads display a surprising variety of socketed copper alloy types together with a single type of tanged iron point. The excellent preservation of the Kerkenes examples shows that some of the copper alloy examples bear incised marks.
