I'm trying to do some research into early bronze weapons in Greece around 2000 BC. They totally didn't take enough instagram photos back then! I've been scouring the internet and books, but most information is for later in Greece's history. What style of sword was used? What style of dagger?
I have some photos I took at the istanbul archaeological museum but unfortunately I'm on my tablet and don't have access to them. Short answer is you are mostly looking at short bronz swords at the time. A book you should check out is "Bronze Age Military Equipment" by Dan Howard, a member on this forum. I wish I could help more but it isn't a topic I'm knowledgeable about.Populus stultus viris indignis honores saepe dat.
