Re: Coat of plates Vs Plate

Scandanavian arms and armour to appear to be more dated then those on central Europe but this has more to do with their economic and geographical postion, Scandanavian nobles seem to be just as provincial when compared to their counterparts in Germany and France.

I'm planning on making one using pine planks, pegs and PVA, and then covered in leather/parchment. After that I might risk it with lime wood, but I might do a different style s...

Re: What do you know about the C15th Parliament?

Richard III only had one parliament, which took place early in 1484

Notable statutes included the illegitimacy of Edward V, rules to protect the English merchants from foreign competition and the modern system of bail.

I was rather shocked to see them sitting round supping out of tins of Carlsberg lager though. They could at least have got that authentic ;-)

Once again we visited the annual celebration of the Hussite Wars in Tabor in the Czech Republic, taking in Prague as well.
Here are my pics of the trip including some shots from the Convent of St Agnes Medieval Art Museum in Prague and the Hussite Museum in Tabor.
