“Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered”: A wear-analysis approach to Bronze Age combat
Dr. Andrea Dolfini, Newcastle University, United Kingdom

Abstract

Interest in prehistoric warfare and violence has dramatically risen in the last two decades. However, the social realities of prehistoric combat encounters are still poorly understood. In order to fill this yawning gap of knowledge, the ‘Bronze Age Combat’ project was launched in 2013 based on a research collaboration between the universities of Newcastle, Leicester, and Durham. Championing a wear analysis approach backed by rigorous field tests, the project seeks to investigate the macro- and microscopic marks left on swords, spear-heads, and shields in Bronze Age combat encounters. The aim is to understand in detail how these weapons were used, in what kind of combat situations, and with what weapon strikes and body motions. The paper discusses the methodology and preliminary results of the project focusing in particular on our tests with, and wear analysis of, Late Bronze Age swords and shields.
