Ancient Weapons in Britain, Hardback Book


Few accounts of ancient warfare have looked at how the weapons were made and how they were actually used in combat.

Logan Thompson's pioneering survey traces the evolution of weapons in Britain across 3000 years, from the Bronze Age to the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Insights gained from painstaking practical research and technical analysis shed new light on the materials used, the processes of manufacture, the development of the weapons and their effectiveness.

His account features new information about the weapons themselves, their origin and design, and it offers a fascinating new perspective on the practice of early warfare.
