The Archaeology of Weapons: Arms and Armour from Prehistory to the Age of Chivalry (Dover Military History, Weapons, Armor)
The Archaeology of Weapons: Arms and Armour from
Premodern weapons of war receive a tremendously detailed and thorough accounting in this volume — the work of a noted authority on medieval arms in Europe. Covering a period of 30 centuries, the study, like a richly woven tapestry, vividly describes the development of arms and armor — beginning with the weapons of the prehistoric Bronze and Iron Ages, through the breakup of the Roman Empire and the great folk-migrations of the period; the age of the Vikings; and finally, the Age of Chivalry.Relying on evidence of arms found in bogs, tombs, rivers, excavations, and other sites as well as on contemporary art and literature, the author describes in detail an awesome array of the weapons and accoutrements of war: swords, shields, spears, helmets, daggers, longbows, crossbows, axes, chain mail, plate armor, gauntlets, and much else.Profusely illustrated with more than 170 of the author's own line drawings and 23 plates depicting many rare and beautiful weapons, this meticulously researched volume will be an indispensable resource for military historians, archaeologists, students of arms and armor, and anyone interested in the weaponry of old.

The Sword: Form and Thought (Armour and Weapons)
The Sword: Form and Thought (Armour and
The sword is the most iconic of all weapons. Throughout history, it has connected various, sometimes conflicting, dimensions of human culture: physical combat and representation of political power, definition of gender roles and refinement of body techniques, evolution of craftsmanship and mythological symbolism. The articles collected here explore these dimensions, from a variety of disciplines, among them archaeology, medieval history, museum conservation, and linguistics. They cover topics from the production and combat use of Bronze Age swords via medieval fencing culture to the employment of the sword in modern military. They question traditional sword typologies and wide-spread theories about sword making, discuss medieval sword terminology and the use of swords as royal insignia, and describe the scientific methods for approaching original finds. Arising from an international conference held at Deutsches Klingenmuseum Solingen (the German Blade Museum), the volume provides fresh insights into the forms the sword can take, and the thoughts it inspires.

Battle Ready Chain Mail Coif Armor
Battle Ready Chain Mail Coif
Battle Ready 4 in 1 Interlocking steel rings are linked together for the strongest sword-proof armor coif. Each steel ring is 10mm in diameter of 8 AWG carbon-infused stainless steel alloy. Each ring is forged by authentic metalsmiths to produce this genuine Medieval Armor Coif. The pattern of links effectively doubles the steel Gauge armor capacity. It covers the head (top and back), the neck, and the upper chest area. Chain mail armor is a highly valued piece of armor. It was very expensive in medieval Europe because of its rarity and production expense. However, many battle commanders, nobility, and wealthier soldiers were willing to acquire chain mail armor to increase their survivability. It protects the body from swords, spears, knives, impact weapons, and projectiles, while still providing full and equal coverage. This chain mail coif is genuine armor that can be worn for the purpose of protection.
