Post Roman/ Pre Saxon swords

Post by Mark Sanderson »

I'm looking for information and examples of swords in Britain from 400 - 500 ad. Pictish or Scots swords will do.

All I can find on the web are Roman, "Celtic" and Saxon swords.

Thanks in advance.

Yep, Indeed, I started the thread on November 28th 2007, and to get as much interest, and feedback, as possible posted the same inquiry on 3 forums (fora?).

I can't be ar5ed looking at the other threads at this time of night but I believe Irish weapons of the period in question got a mention, but nothing more.

Please feel free to post more information on the subject as it has not yet been exhausted. I look forward to your input Mr Brennivs (Tony Drake).

Thanks

Some Pictish pommel finds and some Irish pommels and blades are all you're going to get if you're not interested in Germanic style spatha's.

If you haven't already seen it, there's a thread on the Irish ones here.

Thanks Medicus,

Those pictures on the forum are a great help. I'll bre able to cobble together some fine looking swords from all the information I've gathered.
