Jael slays King Sisera Gideon is called
Jael kills Sisera by driving a large spike into his skull.  Details show: 1 -probably one of the best examples of the hilt of a sword - the grip is leather wrapped, then wrapped with wire, and the crossguard  has detailed grooves at each end.  Also, a great example of a scabbard and a "sword frog" (method of attaching a scabbard to the sword-belt).  Also, you can see a good example of a knight's belt.  2 -a period hammer3 -fine detail of a chainmaille coif with an attached camail 4 -a lady's hair-band/head-band. Gideon is called to rescue Israel from Madian, and makes a sacrifice to an angel of the lord.  Details show: 1 -a male wearing a pear of "Braies" (medieval underwear) - the braies are rolled up around the waist.  Inside the roll is a belt to which linen "Chausses" (leggings, not shown in this picture) were attached by leather laces.  2 - great example of a "Flail" - originally, as seen here, the flail was an agricultural tool used to "thresh" wheat (separate the grain from the straw or husks {"chaff"}) - eventually, someone discovered the usefulness of the flail as a weapon in combat, and it was transformed into the smaller, single-hand weapon of war.  3 -another view of the agricultural flail4 -example of an "Ankle-boot", typically worn by the "worker-class", it was common after c.1200 AD and was up to 12" high.  5 -an agricultural/food preparation tool known as a "Winnowing-Fan", used to sort threshed grain from it's chaff, typically used immediately after the wheat was threshed with a flail.  6 -fantastic example of the wearing of single-leg linen "Chausses" (leggings), showing how they were attached to a leather belt (can't be seen) which was inside the top portion of the Braies (underwear which appears almost like a diaper about the man's groin) which was rolled up at the waistline.  The braies and a pair of "ankle-boots" can also be seen on the wearer.
Details 1Great sword hilt, scabbard, sword-frob and a knight's belt. 2A period-style hammer. 3Chainmaille coif with camail. 4A lady's hair-band.
