Ancient History Knives
Knives of Ancient history is a broad title; Roman, Celtic, Saxon, Viking, etc. Each culture has its own designs and techniques that are recognized from archaeology, though they all are similar in materials. Ancient peoples smelted iron and steel from rock and ore, made bronze from copper and tin, used other primitive materials such as bone and leather.
