Citadel Battle Axe 12th Century Medieval
Orders over $50. Details
The 11th and 12th Century were the centuries of the battle axe. Battle axes were common in Europe in the Migration Period and the subsequent Viking Age, and they famously figure on the 11th-century Bayeaux Tapestry, which depicts Norman mounted knights pitted against Anglo-Saxon infantrymen.
Most medieval European battle axes had a socketed head (meaning that the broader, butt-end of the blade contained an opening into which a wooden haft was inserted), and some included langets, long strips of metal affixed to the faces of the haft to prevent it from being damaged during combat. Occasionally the cheeks of the axe head bore engraved, etched, punched or inlaid decorative patterns. Late-period battle axes tended to be of all-metal construction. Great for ren fairs and reenactments.
