club (weapons: bludgeon)

Asymetrical club with a cylindrical shaft and slightly wider cylindrical handle. The shaft broadens on one side through a concave arc and a groove begins to develop towards the head. As well as being split and damaged the head of the club has been sawn off using a European tool. It is likely that this is the handle of a bird headed club.
