I don't think anyone could make such a film on a low budget.

Sound good to me - my Vike shield is plank built of ludicrously thick planks - similarly difficult for the kids to lift (its actually about half as thick again as it should be for authenticity - I musts make a new one)

Surely everything we do is based upon the pretense of historical portrayel? It is about portraying (or trying to) a person living at a certain time. I don't understand how you can pick and chose certain aspects of what you want to portray if your interest is purely historical accuracy. I'm not a Chr...
spinning, dyeing and weaving a piece of braid to form a belt is hideously more expensive than leather, surely only the rich, if anyone at all used them, would have been rich enough to afford spare material enough to make a belt. Don't see where this also automatically applies to the length of a bit ...
I had an awesome time talking to some really enthusiastic members of the public, who seemed to apoligise profusely about stopping me, like it was a chore for me or something. Posed for a lot of photos with the kiddy-winks, In a few weeks time do a google image search for "that dashing, heroic specim...

Mine are made from course wool, make them long cus they have to go up to your knee, make sure they fit tightly, and that you have about 10cm spare to tuck under to make them hold. I find just tucking them under when they're this length is enough to keep them up.

Senlac hill did it for me, was grudingly dragged there when I was about 14, much against my will, but once I was there I got this weird sense of "this is where it happened" and tried to imagine the faces and lives of the people who died there, it still holds a special place in my heart and I get a f...
Yeah that's what I thought, I keep reading vague references about there being short sleeved tunics about but they're always described as "rare" and no sources are ever cited so I was thinking it may be a re-enactorism that's just been taken to actually be truth. Thanks anyway.
Looking for evidence for short sleeved tunics in the 9th/10th/11th century, I can't think of any examples but apparantly there's meant to be some? Can anyone help out.
artistic licencing perspective was not a known skill and painting curves is fairly difficult the artist may have been attempting to paint a curve What, so he could make a reasonable attempt at rendering depth perspective in the folds of the clothes, tonal face colours and shading but get him to try...
unconvincing since none of it is English. ok 1. The Normans were NOT English these are whom iam talking about so the fixation of lack of English evidence needs not apply. 2. The chess piece I mentioned earlier most certainly is English 3. Once the Normans had conquered they were English or at least...
Isn't the entire basis of the argument you just gave (which was very convincing) based entirely on post-conquest evidence? Early Norman is first Crusade era and can't really be took as evidence for pre-conquest, since you've got the islamic influences of the first crusade interfering.
which, by the standards of common sense, must have, whether or not there's any 'evidence'. By OUR standards, not by theirs. It smacks of presumption to me if we go judging these people by our standards, by our standards why would anyone ride a horse around when it gets sick, needs feeding, cant tel...
