I would be delighted to receive ANY information on, or reference to, the continuing use of a bāton as a symbol of military authority in Europe in the Merovingian/Carolingian period.

Thank you.

The Normans seem to be using them in the 11th century so it would be reasonable to believe that they were just continuing Carolinian practice.

It appears to be carried by William in the Bayeux Tapestry.  Look at Crouch's Image of Aristocracy, I think there is a more detailed treatment of wands and staffs there (can't get to my copy just at the moment).
