Excerpt from Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of London, Vol. 16: November 21, 1895, to June 17, 1897

A feature of somewhat unusual occurrence upon these weapons is found in the small guard of solid metal found with this sword. Handles are very rarely found, and even the tang has frequently disappeared; but the bronze guard, if one may call it by that name, is often seen in position at the end of the Sheath, its preservation being due to the iron rust having cemented it firmly in its place. The guard is not, however, of the kind now before us, but is a thin Strip of metal, usually of an ogee outline, with the two ends rarely extending beyond the Sides of the Sheath, which is designed to fit the curved form of the guard. In the present case we have a solid piece of bronze with the usual outline at the upper edge, but the lower edge is ¿at, to fit the Shape of the Sheath. It is, I think, probable that the pommel of this sword was of some consider able weight, as a heavy counterpoise would be essential to balance the combined weight of the blade and this solid guard. In cases where the complete handle has occurred the pommels are as a rule solid and weighty.
