    The atgeirr and kesja are weapons used in memorable scenes in both Brennu-Njáls saga and Egils saga but, despite the prominent roles held by atgeirar and kesjur in Old Norse texts, there has been relatively little research into identifying these weapons in the archaeological record. While the work of Hjalmar Falkhas been used by a number of editors, particularly Einar Ólafur Sveinsson, Sigurður Nordal, and Ludwig Holm-Olsen, in clarifying their terminology for their editions of Old Norse and Old Icelandic texts, confusion regarding the nature of these weapons still remains, especially when attempting to determine a general physical form for them. To that end, a reexamination of Falk's work and a reassessment of his conclusions regarding atgeirar and kesjur is in order.
