Lancet arches are typically defined as two-centered arches whose radii are larger than the arch's span. The result is a long narrow arch with a steep point named after its ressemblance to the lance.
The motif first appeared in the French early-Gothic period (c. 1140–1200) and later in the English Gothic period (1200–1275) with this era sometimes called the "Lancet Period" due to this arch's popularity.
Examples are Salisbury Cathedral and York Minster.
