DIE FRAGE DES EINFLUSSES DER MARKOMANNENKRIEGE AUF DIE BEWAFFNUNG UND AUSRÜSTUNG DER BEVÖLKERUNG DES BARBARICUMS
Question of the impact of Marcomannic wars on the armament and equipment of the barbarians
Languages of publication
At the end of the older and in the beginning of the younger Roman period, no revolutionary changes are observable in the equipment and accoutrements of barbarian warriors in relation to the influx and intensity of changes. Sets of barbarian accoutrement documented at archaeological sites contribute to the conclusions that the Marcomannic wars and several decades after them did not bring any significant changes in the most frequently used accoutrement in Barbaricum, i. e. in shields and double-edged swords. The only change, approximately simultaneous with the horizon of the Marcomannic wars, is the end of use of single-edged swords in the whole European Barbaricum and spears in the Przeworsk culture area.
