A flail is a melee weapon consisting of a striking head attached to a handle by a flexible rope, strap, or chain. The main benefits of such a weapon, was the capability to strike around an enemy's shield or parry. The downsides however, were that it lacked enough precision to use in close combat, or against multiple enemies.


At some point between 48 and 44 BCE, Lucius Septimius, a member of the Order of the Ancients, acquired a pair of Isu-inspired flails and used them to deadly effect on 15 March 44 BCE fighting against Aya.[1]

In the 9th century, during the time of England's Heptarchy, the flail was a common weapon used by both the invading Vikings and defending Anglo-Saxons.[2]

In 2016, a 15th century flail was kept in the offices of the Abstergo Foundation Rehabilitation Center based in Madrid.[3]
