One of the best in the world, its Zampach Castle, As part of the process of cataloguing medieval and early modern militaria contained in Czech and Moravian collections, the author processed several items from the museums in Vysoké Mýto and Choceň, Eastern Bohemia. This study focuses on longswords, one of which allegedly was found on the site of Žampach Castle. The others hail from various locations — unfortunately no longer known — within the city limits of Choceň (Pardubice region). On the blade of the Žampach sword, there are a wolf and unicorn running to the left, thanks to which we can identify it as having been manufactured in the town of Passau around the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries. A typologically identical sword from Choceň hails from the same period. The remaining two swords (types XVII, H1, 1 and XVII, H1, 1b) can be dated to the second half of the 14th century and the first half of the 15th century. https://www.floorpros.com.au/newcastle.html
