Medieval Weapons

by Jaime Ventura

These are examples of Medieval weapons back in the old days.

These weapons were used in battles and fights between armies or countries or etc.

The first weapon is a knife (Wedge).

The second weapon is a Sword with a very sharp dangerous point at the end.

The third weapon looks like a sword in a way.

The last weapon is a hatchet and is used for fighting in battles and is also a tool for cutting wood.

Weapons were used for battling back then. The picture above is just 4 weapons of medieval times, there are much more to discover and use.

Some weapons are not always used for battling, some weapons like a hatchet is useful for cutting wood and chopping wood. A knife can be used for cutting food, and can also be used for carving.

The crossbow below is used for range fighting.

This bow can also be used for hunting for food for your family and kids.
