Ryan asked for some pictures

Thirteen year old, Ryan G. sent a message after going through out 300 movie curriculum. He asked to see more about the types of weapons the Spartans used at the Battle of Thermopylae. Here you go. All these images are from Wikipedia Commons, and Historybusters thanks them for the use.

The skull of the warrior was actually found inside

Bronze swords from the period

There you go Ryan...hope it helps
