  • What is it?

    Examine this object and tell us what you think it is in the comments. 

    We will post the answer and the full story next week!

    This is #9 in the Education team's Collection Detection series, where we look at an unusual collection item and the story behind it.



  • Looks like an 'Aerial dart/vane' that were thrown from aircraft when flying over infantry during the early part of WW1.


  • It might be a flechette, WW1 or 2 vintage


  • Is it a spike for a trench periscope

  • Is it a manual drill for making large holes in the ground
