    Looks like a Longobard had a prosthetic blade fitted to his arm, definitely an interesting ancient finding!

    Definitely had a community of people supporting him, to survive an amputation in that time period and heal well from it takes a lot of care.

    I can't imagine the discomfort he was in from his teeth wearing down though from tightening the strap of his blade arm.
