Swordsman

History:[edit | edit source]

As a serious military weapon, the sword had to wait for the development of ironworking and the first true swords date from around 1200 BC. Swords in antiquity and classical times tended to be relatively short since they were made of bronze and later because they were rarely called upon to penetrate armor. The classic Roman stabbing sword, the gladius, was only about 2 feet long. In later years, the gladius gave way to the spatha, which was a long slashing sword of the barbarians and the forerunner of the great broadswords of medieval Europe.
