389A-F ‘Charlemagne’s Army leaves for Spain’, Spain or France, mid/late 12th century
(Cathedral Archives, Codex Calixtinus f.162v, Santiago or Compostella, Spain)

This manuscript may have been illustrated by a French hand, and most of the arms and armour are straightforward. One helmet has an apparent button or suspension ring on top (B) and a second (D) is of the archaic southern French, pseudo-Roman, two-piece type. The same warrior (D), an infantryman, also carries an unusual though far from unknown weapon with a long asymmetrical blade and a short halt, which is also seen in French sources and might be a fausar. One spear (F) is shown with a split socket, a rather old-fashioned system normally associated with the British Isles.
