Some of the available search fields allow direct entering of search terms. Right behind these fields, you can find a small checkbox. If you fill in your search term, the search generally runs for any occurrences of the entered string. By enabling the small checkbox ("Exact"), you can execute a search for that exact term.

There are also option menus. You can select search conditions by clicking on their respective entry in the appearing list there.

Breitsax (Landesmuseum Württemberg CC BY-SA)


Beim Sax handelt es sich um ein gerades einschneidiges Schwert, das sich vermutlich aus skandinavischen Vorläufern der Eisenzeit oder aber spätantiken Messern herleitete, letztlich jedoch eine eigenständige Entwicklung der Merowingerzeit darstellt. Ab dem 7. Jahrhundert wird der Sax breiter und schwerer und entwickelt sich zu einer vollwertigen Nahkampfwaffe im Handgemenge. Dieser Breitsax des 7. Jahrhunderts stammt aus Donzdorf, Grab 65, und wurde mit aufwendiger Scheidengestaltung aus Bronze niedergelegt.
