Early medieval "scian" or longknives

Postby Morcant on Sat Jan 29, 2011 6:38 pm

I'm posting the question here aswell, original topic on Kelticos:
http://www.kelticos.org/forum/viewtopic ... 419#p11419

From Lagore "old finds" (I guess):

Numbers 3 and 4.

"Dagger" in 13.

Original discussion here:

I'm wondering if anyone here as any information related to those blades. They are really, really intriguing.

It remembers this one, from a drawing by Mc Bride in "Arthur and the Anglo-saxons wars":

Said to be from Meath in the text.

I really love all those early medieval irish weapons. Really exotic, much questions, few answers!

I'm looking for some backing of those suspicious drawings (I know the axeheads and swords from elsewhere, but not those longknives and daggers), and generally for more information about those single-edged blades.
