Ancient Classic Sword

Product Code: TAANCS

This short bladed design originated in the Mediterranean toward the end of the Bronze Age. These swords were first seen in Britain on the belts of Phoenician and then Greek traders (buying hunting dogs, tin, copper and gold). Some British nobles would have traded for a sword like this, but by the Late Iron Age many Celtic warriors would have had these swords as well. The Roman legionaries had swords of this type until they warred against the Spanish; they then adopted their enemy's deadly short sword which they called the "Gladius Hispanicus".
