Types Of Medival Weaponry

Because the Medieval period was so violent there did not seem to be a shortage of different types of medieval weaponry. The Knights were known for using swords which could be as long as 72 inches or as short as 30 inches. The battle axe was used throughout the entire medieval period. The mace was another popular weapon used by Knights. The mace was a simple weapon made with a large steel ball and a chain attached to a wooden handle. Foot soldiers and archers used a variety of creative weapons including but not limited to swords, crossbows and billhooks which were used to stop a horse.
