Celtic Chariot

Postby Jason » Thu Jan 14, 2016 6:28 pm

For those who may be interested, and who perhaps aren't on F*cebook, I thougth I'd post this picture of early training with my Robert Hurford built Celtic war chariot. Not much to see re ponies or my kit yet, but the Chariot looks good.

Looking good! I'll have some fabrics to show you for soft kit in the next day or so, just excavating the lower strata of the fabric stash looking for something in particular...

LOVELY!

Good to see you have a houndskull bascinet to complete the set-up, only 1000 years or so out so way better than many out there

:o 8-) :roll:

That's not a bascinet, it's a metal target taken out of a skip and propped up to hit clangingly. Also my boots are inauthentic - wrong sort of zip for most of the Celtic period. They had a different shaped zip toggle I believe, especially in the later periods, and historical scholars differ on the tooth arrangement too.

Very nice. Yaron Thau joked about doing something similar due to his many, many Welsh section A's.

Look forward to seeing the finished result.


Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die
