MetadataShow full item record
A sword dated to the second half of the 13th century – the beginning of the 14th century was accidentally found by local shepherd Yuriy Retyaznyk in September 2014 in the Nimychnyy cadastral zone, close to the village of Bohdan in the Rakhiv district of Zakarpats'ka oblast, Ukraine. This type of weapon is quite rare both in the Upper Tisza region and Central-Eastern Europe. Typological schemes of E. Oakeshott, M. Aleksić, A. Geibig, Z.-K. Pinter and M. Šercerova were used for its identification. Results of the analysis of the sword construction provided information for the assessment of the development of bladed weapons in the Middle Ages.
