Dane axe head 22x19.5cm blackened

The Dane Axe, the weapon of the mighty Huscarls and the honoured warriors of the Anglo-Saxon and Viking world, caused justified fear in its day. This fearsome weapon could split a man's head in two or bring down a powerful warhorse. In the hands of skilful, trained warriors, this weapon could stop an entire army. This apparently happened in 1066 at Stanford Bridge, where it was rediscovered many centuries later. Similar axes are also depicted on numerous works of art of the time. One example is the famous Bayeux Tapestry. More information...
