1. Yes, one piece, not composite construction like earlier germanic blades. 2. There were no seperate attatching rivets, or soldering, the pommel was drilled through, and the tang of the blade passed through, then rivetted over to secure it. 3. They were made of iron to counter balance the blade, th...

Harold had to get south ASAP to get to London first and block william in, he knew that, that's why he did it, if he faffed around trying to raise extra troops from over the country then william would have just marched on London, took it, and won by default. It's not that Harold didn't have a big eno...
