Medieval weapons varied from simple tools, like arrows, to complex engines of emerging medieval warfare technology, like cannons. The most used weapons were daggers, axes, clubs and spears, while swords were typically only used by knights and their retainers or by men wealthy enough to afford them.
Swords can be single or double-bladed edges. The blade can be straight or curved.
Medieval fortifications also developed in connection with the weapons that opposed them.
