English Civil War

Post by askbob » Sun Apr 01, 2012 1:08 pm

I've just moved to a property on a battlefield site and I'm thinking of having crossed swords on the wall
Two questions:
1. Which would be the most appropraite swords for the two sides Royalists .v. Parliamentartians?
Mortuary for the Roundheads?
For the Cavaliers?

2. Where to get inexpensive but reasonably authentic looking swords.

Blades sell Don Quijote rapier - too far off track? Cromwell sword?

Thanks

The two sides didn't really have vastly different arms, so the Barnett Cromwell sword and another fairly similar piece like the infantry sabre? Or the 17th century short sword, not sure how they will look crossed?
The pair would set you back near £140 and that's a cracking price for 2 swords
