History Blog: Axes From 14th C. Polish Battlefield


Garth Groff and Sally Sanford
 

Noble Friends,

Today the History Blog feature discusses two 15th century axe heads found at the site of the 1410 Battle of Grunwald. This is said to have been one of the largest middle ages European battles, and marked the beginning of the end for the Teutonic Knights.

The two axe heads, in remarkable condition, were found by a metal detectorist working under the direction of archaeologists excavating the battlefield: http://www.thehistoryblog.com/archives/59460 .

For more on the Teutonic Knights, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teutonic_Order . They are still in business, by the way, though now a charitable organization.

The Battle of Grunwald is found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Grunwald .

Yours Aye,


Lord Mungo Napier, Laird of Mallard Lodge  🦆
