slings
Slings

used primarily for hunting small game

have little effect unless a lucky shot hit the face

Ammunition was rounded stones

no known examples of such a tool

Swords

  • most prized and lauded weapon
  • valuable
  • were often handed down from generation to generation
  • 72 - 80cm (29" - 32") long
limb armour

Helmets

Limb Armour
  • Thick leather was possibly used to make helmets
  • Scolded leather to make it stiff and hard
  • Used to protect the head

Far rarer than body or head armor

Worn by the wealthy

A sensible defense as the legs were unguarded

shields
Shields

used universally by all warriors

have wooden or metal bands on the back to strengthen

flat or 'watchglass' shaped in cross-section

made of linden (Lime) wood

varied in size from around 45 - 120cm

smaller shield sizes come from the pagan period for the Saxons and the larger sizes from the 10th and 11th centuries

slide9
Axes

A flat strip of 'soft' iron is folded in half around a mandrel to create the socket

good in attack

fairly poor as a tool to defend yourself

quickly induces fear

60 - 90cm (2' - 3') long

7.5 - 150cm (3" - 6") blade width
