This is a photograph of an interpreter using a halberd, made of fabric, wood, and iron. This weapon was used as a sign of economic status, meaning that you were a military sergeant. Once, the halberd was a weapon used by British infantry troops during the Middle Ages, but it is no longer a practical fighting weapon. This was a weapon used and developed by the people of England, therefore making it an English invention.
I, being a high ranking military officer, immediately noticed the many possible uses of this metal for army purposes. First off, I could smell a strong stench of sweat and hard work, so I knew these men were fit to work, and the feel of the place was like it was for work and only work. It looked as if there was a variety of tools and beautiful completed metal works, the likes of which I could never afford. At this blacksmith's shop, I could probably buy a fresh flintlock mechanism, all of the necessary tools to live, as well as some metal decorative fixtures. If I wanted to get something from the shop, I would probably register a request with the head store owner, determine a price, and if it is affordable, they would make it and I would come back to pick it up a few days later.r
