Axe, Battle Axes and Battle Knives from Avar-Time Graves in Vojvodina // Warriors, Weapons, and Harness from the 5th-10th Centuries in the Carpathian Basin / Ethnic and Cultural Interferences in the 1st Millennium B.C. to the 1st Millennium A.D. / Ed.

The article analyses the somewhat neglected finds of the battle axes and the battle knives from the southern part of the Avar Khaganate. Just as in the case of axes, size of the objects is the main criterion for distinguishing between the knives and the battle knives. It is concluded that the battle axes were a common type of weapon in Avar use, while the battle knives constitute the least characteristic group of their weapons.
