    Experimental archeology and witchcraft.
  1. Today such an early medieval cross, Gotland silver I did. It is about 5 cm X 5 cm. I used the simplest methods that blacksmiths could use in the early Middle Ages: a sandstone form ... simply a circle, a crucible made of clay mixed with crushed granite, burned in the sun then in fire (withstand about three castings). I cast a silver disc, without high temperature tempering, then cut the shapes with the chisel and finally finished the file. Then I dug the decoration. I chopped it cold and then at a high temperature and hand-made with an iron spike I punched in it and in the cross a rivet hole (I did not drill with a drill). I realized ... and ready.
  2. Such a "stand" under good drink ... in the shape of early medieval warrior. I made it from the debris of the first war with shrapnel. Height 40 cm, weight 15 kg
  3. Two ax hammers. I did it with black granite originating in the Republic of South Africa. The larger is 15 cm long and weighs 400 grams,17 mm hole. Second, smaller,220 grams and 15.05 cm in length, it has a hole of about 17 mm. Now I bought the so-called Swedish granite" Vanga" is red and I will try to do more.
  4. And here, an example of mounting a hammer made of granite. Branch hazel, goat leather and granite. This smaller hammer is made of sandstone. Both quickly consume, but for this type of attachment you do not need profiling stone. On the blackboard with wood hammer and anvil from the Bronze Age on the basis of European discoveries .... except the Netherlands and France in 1100 B.C - 800 B.C And hatchet flat and the manner of its attachment, and two knives from the Polish one in the frame of the antlers.
  5. Flat ax with ornaments dating from 1100 B.C. Ax with a circular floored, culture barrow graves in 1700 B.C-1300B.C. Central Europe. Small casserole is molded out of clay mixed with sand. I used this type of crucibles for casting small things, such bracelets or blade daggers. Mostly they stand 1 to 2 casts .... but there is no trouble in the summer because I've done dozens of them. Then the production of the pedal; I used of broken, cracked ground shells crucibles. The photo is a sandstone with a hole, it is a whetstone to sharpen knives, sickles ... but also great that sandstone is machined bronze, especially kneading dents.
  6. .... not enough that the snow is on the hearth and the anvil !!! Shame!!!

From dawn on September 8 to November 30, 1944, this area became a place of fights and burial of about 120,000 Soviet troops and about 70,000 German soldiers.

  13. The first short sword - dagger and a third dagger is Celtiberians of today's Spain, the last two combat knives are Celts from Europe, the period of La Tene. The one with the ball and a ring on the head is my favorite weapon ... such an awful knives I like and occur in such a style just for them! Dagger hilt anthropomorphic is probably from the British Isles, a Celtic.
