An arrowhead is the point of an arrow or a shape resembling such point and was primarily used as a weapon or in hunting. They are found in archaeological sites around the world and are usually made of stones like flint, obsidian or cherts as well as bone, metal or wood.
The early First Nations groups that inhabitant and settled along the Credit River and in the area now called Mississauga used projectile points and arrowheads for hunting and gathering of food.
