Viking Axe & Shield
In this video, I explain why the hand axe was so popular in combination with a flat round shield as used by both Viking and Slav warriors.

Recorded at a seminar on Viking single combat at the History Park Bärnau in July 2016. See photos here and here. If you are interested in future workshops and classes, you are welcome to get in touch.

Footage kindly provided by Christian Stickel, editing by Karen Schmidt. Special thanks to my patron Daniele Imhoff for assisting in the fight demos.

This video premiered here on Patreon, and was available to members of the Legio Dimicatorum, holding a rank of discipulus or higher, a week before it was made accessible to everyone. It is due to their support that my videos still remain ad-free. Thanks for that, legionnaires!
