The Oakeshott typology was created by historian and illustrator Ewart Oakeshott as a way to define and catalogue the medieval sword based on physical form. It categorizes the swords of the European Middle Ages (roughly 11th to 16th centuries) into 13 main types labelled X to XXII. Oakeshott introduced it in his treatise The Archaeology of Weapons: Arms and Armour from Prehistory to the Age of Chivalry in 1960.|
* The system is a continuation of Jan Petersen's typology of the Viking sword, introduced in De Norske Vikingsverd ("The Norwegian Viking Swords", 1919), modified in 1927 by R. E. M. Wheeler into a typology of nine types labelled I to VII by Wheeler, extended with VIII and IX by Oakeshott.
* Among the many reasons for his Typology, Oakeshott found date classification unreliable at the time his research was conducted. He suggested that trade, warfare, and other various exchanges, in combination with the longevity of the weapons obscured the date of manufacture, use, and retirement.
