Irish Halberds and Daggers

I personally feel that the prettiest weapons in the world are Celtic Bronze Age weapons.  Below are four halberds....these blades are riveted onto the stick so they stick out sideways.  We know the length of the stick by the downward "droop" of the halberd.  

The usual love of the trinity comes out here...a re-occuring motif with trisekelions and such...most weapons of war seem to have been attached to their handles by three rivets.  
 All eight of these weapons are about four thousand years old.  

As usual, if anybody wants larger pictures of these for whatever reason, I'll send 'em to you...just email me at marshalbill@gmail dot com
