Celtic (Iron Age) Weapons For Sale
Contemporary descriptions of Celtic Iron Age warriors stress the ferocity and fervour of their attack; classical writers regarded this as typical of barbarian peoples who knew no better than to throw themselves on their enemies' spears, and if the attack foundered thay had no plan of retreat or regrouping. Ideas such as these circulated widely in the Roman world, but nevertheless the Romans always retained a healthy respect for the peoples of Central Europe (Celts, Germani, Dacians and others). Iron Age warriors used long, heavy slashing swords, short thrusting daggers, leaf-shaped spearheads for offence, and broad shields, tall helmets and shirts of mail for defence. Alongside the horse-borne warriors there were charioteers and infantry formations, who signalled using the carnyx, a kind of trumpet with a zoomorphic design.
