I have lived in some of those places where the "barbarians" that threw down Rome roamed. There are a lot of old weapons and also farm equipment that were used for weapons still displayed usually in eating and drinking places as well as in museums.

I have my fathers old pole saw and branch lopper. Two 6 foot poles of wood that fit together in a metal socket and have a deadly looking 40cm saw blade and a 2 inch cut capacity, uniquely designed anvil lopper on 1 end. The lopper is operated with a pull rope.

It might be considered a "pole arm."

My collection of my fathers old picks, mattocks, axes, and bush axes is also impressive. The great wear on these impressive pieces of steel tell a story of long labor and tremendous effort.
