My knowledge of the artefacts pictured below is not that great and as I forgot to take notes/photographs of the details there will only be a brief description/thoughts. Just enjoy the pictures!
|Bronze Age Weapons. What appears to be a 'Grip Tongue' type sword, A classic Bronze Age Spear|
head and what I can only assume in a ceremonial axe head of some type.
|Two Early Medieval spear heads and a shield boss. I am |
unsure whether these are Vendel or 'Viking' era.
|A Dane Axehead, unsure of the date.|
|Three Swords, all of a different type dating from c700AD onwards.|
|A of Late C15th through to early C17th weapons and armour.|
|A of Late C15th through to early C17th weapons and armour including |
caltrops and shot. I am unsure about the ceramic tiles and
why they were included in the display.
|A Winged spear and a Swedish Morion/Pot|
|A very fine pair of flintlock pistols with ivory and gilt inlay.|
|17th Century wheelock arquebus.|
|A pair of 17th Century Swords. Right is a Swedish M1685 I believe. I am unsure |
about the left example but it is earlier I think.
|The equipment of a Gothenburg City Watchman|
