Concept and Meaning of MaceMace is a knotty stick that formerly served (i.e., from antiquity to the 16th century) blunt weapon. This weapon consisted of a stick iron (or lined with this material) and a larger piece (big head), or a club whose end was wider. This end of the mass was the heaviest part of the weapon and causing damage to the opponent.
The creation of the club dates back to prehistoric times when it was used in the fight between the men, but also to hunt wild animals. Over time, the Club has evolved and his head began to include blades or iron spikes (or even spikes studded), lead, brass or other metals.
