Default Weapons of the Iberian Iron Age

For those who care for these things and didn't have a chance to appreciate them as they were dispersed in 'less topic' threads and posts, i thought i would upload here a series of images on these Iberian swords, scanned from a catalogue held in 2003 by Hermann Historica for the special auction of the impressive Axel Guttman collection; with an introduction included. The collection in auction was a vast one from this period; i am just concentrating on swords... so far.
Note that Falcata #064 has its blade intentionally bent, a ritual used to bury the deceased weapons in his tomb..
