Add to album

This bronze rapier blade is one of around a dozen found in a hoard at Drumcoltran in Kirkcudbrightshire. It dates from between 1500 and 1150 BC.

The tip of the rapier blade is broken off.

Warriors had a major social role in their society and displayed their status through fancy weapons. Some rapiers may only ever have been intended for use as prestige or ceremonial weapons rather than for actual combat.
