£59.16

Be the first to review this product

The North Grimston Dagger was found by accident in 1902 while laborers were digging on Lord Middleton´s land near North Grimston. The smaller of the two swords discovered was decorated with an anthropomorphic (man-shaped) handle. Ownership of such a rare item marks the man buried at North Grimston out to be one of the most important people of Iron Age East Yorkshire. 


The dagger is one of a small number of similar weapons found across Celtic Europe which features a human figure forming the hilt. Other examples were found in Hungary, Northern Italy, Switzerland, and France. This dagger can now be seen on display at Hull and East Riding Museum.
