Actual weapons...3 Kingdom Period.
These photos which I captured on my camera showed real relics of the different types of weapons excavated during archaelogical digs around that region.
Most came from the 3 Kingdom period.
The top photo:
Bronze swords, some with the handle already lost; but this one with the handle grip still intact. They are double-edge swords use for delivering chops and cuts in fighting and a pointed end for thrusting.
Different kinds of halbergs. This was a kind of weapon head attached to the end of a long stout pole. It's curved blade can be used effectively to extend and then lop off an enemy's head. It has another pointed pike beneath which can be used to inflict terrible damage to any part of an enemy's upper body and head.
These were excavated arrow heads from those days. The wood forming part of the flying arrow has long since vanished leaving only these metal arrowheads in the ground.
