Clubs like this were used into modern times to crack hard earth or dung on the fields, before introduction of harrows. We have them on museums. I don't know if they ever were tested on human heads however.

Gödselklubba

The folk memory of the "club army" was mentioned in another thread here.

An addition: the program host Jonathan Lindström checked his DNA and compared it with the one of the first battle ax graves in Sweden from Östergötland and found it was almost identical (13').
