To add further fat to the fire I'd have to agree with Nigel on the axe, it's glaringly inaccurate for the overall presentation. Kite shields are shown point up when slung in every case I'm aware of, so that would theoretically be the norm. The mail length is debatable, you might think about represe...

I did say " my rendition" -didn't copy it or try to go back in time to get every chink of chainmail! I can accept artistic criticism (even though there was no standard 'uniform' ) and maybe you're right about some of this, maybe not (shield, mail, perspective, IMO). Some manners would have been nic...

Things turned out wrong in the end (guess which side I'm on) :lol: The proof of why Harold was popularly elected as king "unanimously" over Edgar(according to one source), was proved when Edwin & Morcar were reputed to have deserted Edgar as William advanced on London(if they were there at all).

Here's the question;- Knowing the grievous losses of vitally-needed housecarls & thegns at Fulford and Stamford, including brother earls Edwin/Morcar's ...

Hi Malvoisin, soz for duplicating this subject, I was only going to say 'hi' but got carried away! Yes I believe that Robin has secured much US funding, exactly how much for sure I dunno. Enough to make a massive impact I understand though. Johhny Depp is a main 'target' due to not least his ability...
