Aiden CC Posted July 8, 2022 Share Posted July 8, 2022 I recently picked up this book as part of researching old sheaths. I haven’t gotten a chance to read much of it, but it has a lot of photos, drawings, and some reconstructions of sheaths from the Iron Age up to the seventeenth century, though generally there seems to be more material from more recent periods. Each section contains information about specific finds as well as more general notes about sheaths from that era. There is a decent portion regarding seax sheaths, and sheaths for small knives of the same ear I’m excited to dig into. There is also general information regarding the materials, construction, and ornamentation of sheaths. Here is the table of contents to get a sense of the space devoted to each section. 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
