Medieval Swords And Their Use

Medieval swords are from Europe around the 15th century. The medieval sword resembles their predecessors, the steel Celtic sword, which evolved around 1500 B.C. The blade of the medieval swords measure about one yard in length. The grip of these swords is meant to be held with one hand so the other hand is free to hold a shield for defense. Medieval swords were meant to use for cutting, so in early times they had a very thin blade and a rounded tip. Later on, the sword became a little thicker with a sharper point. The role of the medieval sword was for a personal weapon during medieval times.
