Query by Rammm: How lengthy was the roman sword?
i have researched and most sited say that the gladius sword was the most typical. I am carrying out the time period about 100- a hundred and fifty AD…..and if you could notify me duration of it….Thank you

Very best solution:

Answer by Dave
Blade duration ~sixty-68 cm. Sword duration ~75-85cm. Sword width ~5cm – courtesy of wikipedia.

It’s regarded as a lot more of a dagger than a sword to be truthful, because of to the dimensions of their big shields.
