  1. Hey guys this is one thats been on the bench for a while now, been slowly working on it when the feeling was right... blade started out here http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=28534&hl= and I ran outta steam on it and my feelings about the swords greatly changed... made it to Scotts place last year and it went into a deep sleep for many months! But after many hours looking at old sword scabbards and la Tene art it had to be awakened! and it was about time I finsihed something
  2. So I finally found a copy of both books from The British Academy press on the swords and scabbards from La Tene. They've been on my "watch for these books" list for some time, but the only copies i'd been able to find they were asking upwards of 1000$ for. The Finds from the Site of La Tene - Volume 1 Scabbards and the swords found in them Part 1- Text The Finds from the Site of La Tene - Volume 1 Scabbards and the swords found in them Part 2- Catalog and Plates Like the books on Illerup Adal which I recommended below, these are archaeological texts, so a bit dry, but full of massive amounts of detail Unlike the other set however, these books are in English so you dont need to learn another language. Book 2 is probably the most interesting, with all the photos of the swords and scabbards and detail shots, but book 1 contains fantastic info on the sheathes, construction, the various zoomorphic designs and motifs found, etc. I highly highly recommend if you find a copy of these books for a reasonable price, pick them up! This is the full documentation on one of the most fantastic collections of pre-vikign era european iron age weapons, in fantastic states of preservation. -Justin
