The word "Celt" or "Zelt" for this type of cold weapon was proposed in the seventeenth century, but it came into use quite recently. The origin of the name is also worthy of a separate topic for study. CeltSome believe that the name comes from the Latin word “celtis”, meaning “chisel”. And other researchers attribute the origin of the Celt to the people of the same name, seeing this ax as a typical edged weapon for them. However, Celtic bronze axes are found in places where the Celtic tribes never existed. In addition, there are finds of much earlier epochs than the living Celtic nations. Earlier in archeology, especially Western, the term "Celt" meant almost any axes and hoes of bronze. At the moment, the situation has changed. For example, in English archeology, this name is used for wedge-shaped axes without holes. Distinctive features of the design of the Celt is the unusual shape of the butt, or rather its absence. In place of the butt, usually, a sleeve is made perpendicular to the blade into which the handle is then inserted. The very same handle could be straight or have a knee at an angle of up to ninety degrees. The chopping part of the ax expanded slightly towards the blade, but the ax itself is considered narrow. Wide blades are not made. Material: Bronze
