Summary

Through type division of a kind of barbed broad-leave bronze spearheads discovered in North China and analogy analysis with the similar artifacts widely discovered in the Eurasia steppes, we consider they are results of the Qijia(齐家) People in the Gansu-Qinghai area(甘青地区) engaging with the further north Seima-Turbino People. However, based on the feature differences on many aspects between them, we consider the former is not a kind of exotic object, but imitations from the latter. The Gansu-Qinghai area might be its producing area in China; and the four newly excavated bronze spearheads in pit H181 of Xiawanggang(下王岗) site in Xichuan(淅川) County are possible to be objects imported from the Qijia culture and then handed down as a kind of foreign assimilated element in the Erlitou(二里头) culture.
