Sample text

The outer rim was cunningly adorned on either side by a row of white and flashing boars' tusks. As you see, a careful, practical and convincing description. It seems that it was something of a curiosity, even at the time of the Trojan war; perhaps that is why Homer describes it so minutely, for his usual way with a helmet is to use a single adjective, generally "flashing" or "glittering". He goes on to say: The helmet originally came from Eleon, where Autolyclus stole it from Amyntor son of Ormenos by breaking into his well-built house.

The "Carp's Tongue" swords were big weapons with curiously shaped blades; their edges ran parallel for about two-thirds of their length, then abruptly narrowed to a point. A very fine one was found in the Thames off Kew (Brentford Museum); it is one of the very few complete specimens of the type, for most have been found in fragments Page 29 Fig. 8. Bronze "Carp's Tongue" sword from the Seine (Musée de l'Armée, Paris). Fig. 9. Hilt of "Rhone Valley" type sword. Late Bronze Age (from Switzerland, now in the British Museum).

It was left to the barbarians to continue the old tradition, Page 23 in the case of the Celtic West up to the time of the campaigns of Agricola in Britain. There is plenty of literary evidence for the construction of the Celtic chariots, amply supported by archaeological finds of many examples in the tombs of chieftains. So for more than 1,000 years the aristocratic charioteer was the arbiter of battle all over the world.
