Last pieces in stock
(catalogue number: AES4759)

Replica of a Ball-and-chain Flail from the 15th to the early 16th century. The models were based on preserved originals from Germany and Switzerland. This type of Ball-and-chain Flail also appears in contemporary depictions from the late Middle Ages. The Ball-and-chain Flail first appeared in the 10th century in Eastern Europe. Awareness of this weapon spread to the rest of Europe during the 11th to 13th centuries, but the two-handed Ball-and-chain Flail achieved its greatest fame in the 15th century (especially in Bohemia during the Hussite Wars). Its use is also known from peasant uprisings in the 16th and 17th centuries.
