Ancient Weaponry

War has been waged across civilisations and time, resulting in the advancement of weaponry manufacture, metalworking technology and combat skills. As Ancient cultures developed and evolved, different echelons of society adopted ceremonial practices to elevate their perceived status. Much of the weaponry found on our site would have also served a ceremonial purpose. Warfare presented the opportunity not only to display one’s physical and intellectual superiority, but also one’s social superiority, as is demonstrated by our array of decoratively detailed accessories. Bronze Age shield bosses boast beautiful examples of the repoussé technique.
