  1. Four early medieval axes. Forged from old-welded iron.
  2. A few smaller things ... shield-shaped charms from men's graves, forged from old-welded iron, and small utility knives.
  3. George,The sleeves are not welded, fused to the face. Thanks Frosty,
  4. Przeworsk Culture, 3 B.C - 4 A.D., Central Europe. Two belts with additions based on finds from the graves of Germanic warriors.
  5. Germanic spears based on the Vimose finds. The longest with an octagonal sleeve is 48.5 cm and weighs 330 grams. The other two have rounded sleeves, 39.5 cm and 38.5 cm long, and each brew 300 grams. The knife is a Germanic standard with a Vimose pattern from a single-edged sword. Blade 19 cm long, whole knife 30 cm.
  6. ... I have described it several times ... first in form then on the side of the anvil.
  7. Thanks Frosty! These knives were used in the period of La Tene, mainly in the Eastern Celts, although they are also found in Germany. In many books they are described as "ritual knives for cutting meat" ..... I strongly disagree with that! The way the handpiece is made proves it! The handles are very short and have two balls, they are adapted to hold them in two fingers and ask for cut punches, from above in a large or opposite way. To cut the meat you need a much better grip, with all your hand !!
  8. Thanks! Yes of course. He deals with experimental archeology mainly in the Bronze Age and the early Iron Age. And here today, Germanic spears finished from Jutland.
