A collection of weapons used to slaughter British troops at the famous battle of Isandlwana in the Anglo-Zulu war has emerged for sale.
The collection was amassed by David Smith, a former Royal Marine Commando from Beckenham in Kent, who had an interest in the culture of the Zulu people.
There are over 150 items for sale including a club thought to be used by an executioner, worth £300, and a necklace made from lion's teeth worth £2,000.
Mr Smith suddenly died aged 65 in 2009 and the items are being sold by his partner, Roberta Welham.
The whole collection could fetch £100,000 in total.
