In archaeology, a flange hilted sword is the type of sword with a stem (hinge), in which the handle is placed on an extension of the blade running through the handle, as opposed to the riveted sword or the solid hilted sword. The term was coined by Dr. Julius Naue when he classified these swords in his work ‘Die vorrömischen Schwerter aus Kupfer, Bronze und Eisen’. In his honour, he was later chosen as the type designation "Naue I" and "Naue II". There are about 350 finds of the "common flange hilted sword" known in northern Europe, which are mostly attributed to the Bronze Age.  Oscar Montelius is known for making a more accurate dating of such Bronze Age finds in Scandinavia. After periods of Montelius, several swords were dated.
