North Grimston Celtic Sword

£117.92

Be the first to review this product

In 1902, workers accidentally found a Celtic grave on the North Grimston estate. The Celt was buried with a shield, two swords, and a piece of pork. The smallest sword was decorated with an anthropomorphic grip (shaped like a human), typical for Celtic swords from the La Tene period. Such swords were luxurious and exclusive and belonged to mighty warriors.

Similar swords have been excavated in Switzerland, Hungary, France, and other Celtic countries. The original sword is now on display at the Hull and East Riding Museum and is one of the best-preserved anthropomorphic swords. This Celtic ornamental sword is great for collectors of historical swords and as home decoration.
