Jake Powning Posted June 16, 2009 Share Posted June 16, 2009 Hi Guys, I thought I would climb out of the cave and show you what I've been working on This spring I made a trip to Britain and made a study trip to the British Museum with Peter Johnsson and Owen Bush. We documented three anthropomorphic hilted swords from the British La Tene period, so basically Celtic short swords. It was a really good learning experience to measure and trace old swords. when I got back home I started doing a reconstruction of one of the swords, based on my measurements, drawings and photographs. It has a high layer laminated blade of 1075/8670m and the hilt is cast silicon bronze. here is a link to a page I wrote about it with more stats and pictures. Anthro reconstruction page thanks for looking! Jake Powning Swords Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
