I'm looking for artwork or historic finds with there source from arms around the 14th century. Like the Maciejowski Bible or the Romance of Alaxander, where u can see clearly what forms weapons had and how they where handled. I'm especially interested in to pole arms, because I re-enact a 14the century pikeman.
I'm really interested what more kind of weapons where used instead of the usual pike and halberd.

I'm really curious what u guys have for pictures or artwork.

Casper,
Hello and welcome to myArmoury.com. Happy We have a lot of information on this site that can help you. I'll try to point you toward some.

-Maciejowski Bible. This is a mid-13th century work so it's our of your timeframe. It's been discussed here many times, though, and info on it should be easy to locate using the forum Search function

-Our Features Page has many articles that cover the 14th century. Our spotlight articles in particular cover armour and weapon forms used in the period, showing extant weapons/armour, period art, and modern reproductions. The article on Monumental Brasses might be a good one to check out as well, plus our great article on Ewart Oakeshott.

-I'd check out some websites that deal with monumental brasses and effigies, like www.gothiceye.com and http://effigiesandbrasses.com/ .

-For polearms, check this thread: pole weapons of the 14th century as well as 14th century pole arms

-There are many forum threads that deal with your area of interest. Just use the forum Search function to find them. Happy

Happy hunting!

Happy

ChadA
