Nubian Dagger

Nubian Dagger
Sketch of a Nubian bronze dagger from Kerma, Sudan, which dates back to circa 1750 BC. This particular dagger was actually pretty small with a length of 17 cm (or less than 7 inches) and was found buried in a child’s grave. I’m guessing it was some kind of toy for the kid to practice his fighting skills at a young age. The blade’s design is similar to that of contemporary Egyptian weapons, but the ivory component in the handle is distinctly Nubian.
