A popular group of weapons during the ancient and Medieval periods were the polearms. Their length was a distinct advantage and, for the peasant, they were a relatively easy weapon to make. Thus, there came to be an abundance of polearms of different sizes and shapes. Polearms consist of various weapon blades and heads mounted on long poles. Polearms are two-handed weapons and a shield cannot be used with them.

Note: I am lazy.  I do not want to make individual pages for each and every tiny variation.  Therefore, when there are two very similar weapons that are just slight variations on each other, I list the less well-known variant under "Other Names."
