Description

Versatile and variable, the bill was a common pole weapon to use in the Middle Ages, and as such, they came in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Some had long, needle points for thrusting, while others, like this Broad Bill, were more for cleaving. The best part about a military bill is that it combines some of the best features of several different weapons. The wicked point on the bill ensures that it has the thrusting power and the versatility of a spear, while the broad cutting edge gives a military bill the cutting power of an axe. And the addition of a pointed spike on the back of the blade gives it even more utility, ranging from hooking cavalry, riders, and horsemen and pulling them off their mounts to penetrating armor with a single, decisive and powerful back-swing.

T - The Lochaber axe was a halberd that came into use in Scotland around 1300. The name of the weapon derives from Lochaber, an area in the western Scottish Highlands, as the weapon was employed principally by the Scottish highlanders, who (generally without any cavalry of their own) required armament against cavalry.

Original Culloden targe in the Royal Armouries Museum

Cras luctus sapien lacus, vel convallis arcu sodales vitae. Proin id accumsan enim. In pharetra tortor a nunc elementum, fermentum pulvinar urna rutrum. Nullam dolor neque, elementum at tellus id, gravida posuere tellus. In nec ligula ornare, rhoncus velit at, lobortis lectus.

A similar targe is on display at the National Museum of Scotland.
