Always associated spear with primitive weapon and sword with more advanced.
However newer doesn't always means better.

Good analysis on this video.

Interesting, but where's the spear and shield vs sword and shield group fight?

I'll also tell you from experience that a Shield wall with shorter weapons with a wall of spears behind them is even better. My favorite tactic was to use an axe and shield. I use the axe to hook the opponent's shield and bring it down a bit and the spear guy behind me stabs him in the face. Works really well.
