Ламеллярные доспехи эпохи викингов

Перевела Виктория Заблоцкая. Пластинчатая броня до сих пор является популярной темой для обсуждения как среди историков-экспертов, так и среди реконструкторов. Я и сам занимался этим вопросом. Мои исследования привели меня к малоизвестным находкам из Снексгярде, располагающемуся неподалёку от Висбю. Они не сохранились, однако были подробно описаны Нильсом Йоханом Экдалем (1799-1870), так называемым «первым исследователем Готланда”. […]

Lamellás vértek Skandináviában

Fordította Füle Dénes. A lamellás vértezet kérdése nagyon gyakori a szakértők és a hagyományőrzők körében is. Személy szerint gyakran találkoztam ezzel a problémával, ezért összegyűjtöttem néhány irodalmi anyagot. Kutatásaim rekonstruálatlan leletekhez vezettek,a gotlandi Snäckgärde-ből, ami nem messze helyezkedik Visby-től. Ezek a leletek nem maradtak fent, de a lelkészként praktizáló Nils Johan Ekdahlnak (1799–1870) hála a […]

Lamellenrüstungen der Wikingerzeit

Übersetzt von Johannes Bühling. Das Thema Lamellenrüstungen ist unter Fachleuten und Reenactoren gleichermaßen diskutiert. Ich selbst habe mich bereits mehrmals mit diesem Thema auseinandergesetzt und Literatur gesammelt. Bei meinen Nachforschungen stieß ich auf praktisch unbekannte Funde aus Snäckgärde, das in der Nähe von Visby auf Gotland liegt. Die dortigen Funde existieren heute nicht mehr, aber […]

The helmet from Tjele

I am very grateful to Mogens Larsen for his help. In 1850, an extraordinary find was discovered by a young farmer in the forest called Lindum Storskov, near Tjele, Denmark.

The helmet from Gjermundbu

On March 30 1943, Universitetets Oldsaksamling in Oslo gained the information that a farmer named Lars Gjermundbo found and dug into a huge mound on his land near the farm of Gjermundbu, Buskerud county, southern Norway. The place was examined by archaeologists (Marstrander and Blindheim) the next month and the result was really fascinating. The mound was […]

Two-handed axes

Introduction For all my reenactment career (ca. 10 years), I encounter so-called Dane axes, two-handed axes used in second lines on the battlefields. These weapons are very popular and terrifying and the same time. What the most problematic part of fighting with this kind of weapon is the fact that modern warriors tend to implement […]

I am sure there are many other finds that are not included. Please, let me know if you find what I missed. Thank you. The typology can […]
