Medieval Weapons and Associated Items For Sale

A medieval knight's favorite weapon was his great two-handed sword. Battle-axes were also used as weapons to lethal effect when mounted on a yard long haft and swung with both hands. More widely used medieval weapons included the mace and poleaxe which were very popular in medieval hand-to-hand combat. A medieval knight also used a dagger as a back up in case his sword was knocked out of his hand. In medieval England archers used the lethal longbow as a weapon with devistating effect. The medieval crossbow was introduced in the 11th century which also proved to be an effective weapon.
