Seen in the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, a ‘seax’, an Anglo-Saxon single-edged knife. The photo is of a replica, which the Museum graciously says we ‘are welcome to handle’. Seems a good thing to have in your belt, along with a scramasax, another fine-named Anglo-Saxon weapon: ‘a large knife with a single-edged blade, found among Anglo-Saxon grave goods, used for hunting and fighting’.
How can we keep in touch?
