  1. ... and a few more spears, two have a bone wide at the root and tapering upwards. Such spears from this type of bone are characteristic for Migration Period ... Five spears of the type Simris,Goe i Sattra used between the 2nd century AD and 4 in northern Barbaricum. 1.With hexagonal sleeve,Simris,massive type, 2nd century AD, length 39.5 cm, width 3.5 cm, 2 cm hole, weight 300 gram. 2.Goe type,3rd century AD, with round sleeve, 40 cm long, 3.5 cm wide, 2.2 cm wide, weight 250 gram. 3.Goe type,3rd century AD, with round sleeve,length 42 cm, width 2.5 cm, hole 2.2 cm, weight 245 gram. 4.Sattra type,4th century AD, round sleeve, length 30 cm, width 2.5 cm, hole 1.7 cm, weight 180 gram. 5..Sattra type,4th century AD, round sleeve,length 38 cm, width 3 cm, hole 1.7 cm, weight 210 gram. These five spears are based on finds from Illerup Adal. Most Celtic iron spears have a wide or very wide leaf and could be used for cutting and thrusting ... neighbors from behind the Rhine Germans, vice versa .... no leaf, their spears were mainly used for thrusting.
  2. OOO .... and you've hit the spot! When I started researching experimental archeology a few years ago, I came up with the same idea, and that I have my pond and swamp made by beavers is always the first thing I will do with bronze or iron and I'm happy with it, I'm just dumping, I'm not lying, there are several spears, buckles, axes. I believe that such activities bring me and my work closer to that era!

  11. ... it is not a blade ... but maybe Moderators will not remove this post. I finished the hammer of a Swiss infantryman from the turn of the 15th-16th century. I made it to the museum as an original from the period, so I had to make it. The long one is 132 cm long, steel plus iron plus bronze and black oak.
  12. Ornamental plaques are belt at the waist and then hammered down with a wooden hammer, they hold very tightly. There are no rivets, no glue, etc. Roman belts were probably made. As far as I know this way, the Germanic tribes have just borrowed from the Romans. Here is a photo of a fire starter with a wooden handle, from the same period. They survived in such a wonderful condition because all of them lay in the swamps.
  13. ... and the whole set from the Iron Age: three spears, belt, flint and flint pouch.
