        Three Japanese Swords

        In 1603, the Tokugawa family came to power as the rulers of Japan. Three samurai swords worn during this time, also known as the Edo period, are discussed by Asian Arts appraiser Dessa Goddard in this video produced for Antiques Roadshow. The swords, that have been in the United States since 1898, include a daisho set: a katana and a wakizashi, two swords mounted together and worn by a mid-level samurai. In addition to the set there is a court sword, bearing symbols that make it a highly unusual piece.

        A full Teacher's Guide accompanies this video on the Antiques Roadshow Web site.
