Pre-14thC sources

Postby admin » 09 Nov 2010 15:34

The source known as I.33 is currently the earliest known technical personal combat treatise and it dates to around AD1300. However, some earlier sources give detailed descriptions of combat which can be of use in trying to understand earlier combat methods. This sub-forum is for links to those sources, and as there are no technical sources for personal combat from earlier than I.33, we will accept sagas, military treatises etc that give some details that can be used in the possible interpretation of earlier fighting styles and military tactics.

I like swords more than you.
