If just that axe (or sword in another picture I believe) was a mace, then the image would be complete :)

Perhaps he is a follower of Sarajin, not Agrik ? :D

Good guess.
I am hopelessly old fashioned in dress and armour, because my 15 century armour is still at the armourer... And the other "knights" really rubs it inn.

But I think early 14 century armour and dress looks very Hârnic.

HI

I have just returned from a week of jousting at "Bornholm medieval center" in Denmark. It is an open air museum, with really high quality rebuilt medieval houses and a fort.
We had real funn, and I hope some of the pictures can be inspiering.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. I'm sure you had fun. Did you win the tournament and become the Champion?

I did winn some glory for my lord; Baron of Mjøskastellet: "Herr Ola Aslakson" :D

I did winn most of my duels on foot
I broke a lot of lances, and was not unhorsed. (othere were)
I splintred or broke most of the wooden shields, and I did it with a longsword, twohanded, without using the reins.
But the two real events of the turney, The mounted meele, and the Joust. I never won. Not anny of the six days... :(
I blame one of my oponents.. because he cheates... (he cant help it, because his horse runs sideways on the tilt, making it dangerous to strike him, because the horses head is in the way)
And my helmet. It has to little visibility, so in a joust, I do not see my oponent the last second. making aiming dificult. That is also a problem in the meele, because the object is to knock the crest of the oponents helmet with a club. And with my limited visibility, I am easy to flank.... :?
I admit that I regrett selling my old armor, because my new one has not been ready for this season.

English Heritage now offers online videos
English Heritage launches online TV
31 July 2008
Press Association

History fans who want to find out how to lay siege to a medieval castle or watch a re-enactment of the Battle of Hastings can now tune into a series of online TV shows from English Heritage.

The national heritage body is officially launching EHTV, which provides a range of video and audio programmes with information on great moments in English history and behind-the-scenes looks at historic sites. Programmes on the site include celebrities Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen presenting a show on Eltham Palace and Konnie Huq talking about Osborne House. A series of tongue-in-cheek how-to guides allow people to find out how to do unusual things such as cook like a Roman, fire a bow and arrow and tell the time in the 9th century.

The programmes on the English Heritage website also include one on Dover Castle's secret wartime tunnel and another on the conservation of Silbury Hill. Dan Wolfe, English Heritage's marketing director, said: "We've teamed up with the History Channel along with a host of English Heritage experts, re-enactors and well-known names including Dan Snow and Bill Bailey, to put together a collection of original programmes, presenting reliable and accurate historical content in a format that can be accessed by anyone, anywhere."

Video and audio clips can be downloaded or streamed from the site and last from under a minute to up to an hour. EHTV is sponsored by the History Channel and can be accessed free at www.english-heritage.org.uk/ehtv

For everyone concerned about the hazard to life presented by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) this site (Has the Large Hadron Collider Destroyed the Earth) is constantly monitoring the situation. We can sleep easy in our beds.

Since we're on the LHC, check out this pedagogical rap:

Apparently, those are the real technicians who appear on the video.

Aw, you can't tell. The credits clearly say the dancers "Prefer to Remain Anonymous". :P

Actually, I found out about this video in a (reputable) newspaper article that discussed the LHC rap. It is the brainchild of a young british female scientist who works at the CERN. She apparently had the video vetted by her fellow scientists who had no objections to it - so it landed on YouTube.

And they're so clumsy parodying rap moves that they MUST be scientists. :wink:

For Halloween, how about finding a haunted house in the U.S.?

Never mind the LHC (it’s broke anyway).

The world will be in BIG trouble on November 15, 10:30 am, PST,/ 1:30 pm, EST,/ 18:30 hrs. UTC/ Greenwich Mean Time/ZULU when an Inbound Potentially-Devastating Asteroid will cause:

Quote:
tsunamis much higher than 300 feet tall would crash on the shores of Halifax, N.S., Boston; New York City; Chesapeake Bay (Washington, DC); Norfolk, VA; Charleston, SC; Savannah, GA, Jacksonville, FL; Miami, FL; Cuba; Dominican Republic/Haiti; Puerto Rico; and Caracas, Venezuela. And would surge inland possibly more than 15 miles. Additionally, the Atlantic Coast of Europe and Africa would also likely be at risk.
It is perhaps instructive that 35 million years ago another incoming asteroid, twice as big, impacted the U.S. coast near Norfolk, Virginia and created a crater 39 miles wide and 2/3 of a mile deep.
A remote-viewing psychic on my team saw that the Nov. 15 asteroid’s impact would create an extremely-powerful downward pressure wave that would precipitate the eruption of a massive volcano on the seabed floor which would grow to almost the ocean’s surface, causing weather and ocean navigation challenges.


More details HERE

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to save the earth myself :oops: as I’ll be busy preparing for guests at my wife’s birthday party. I’m relying on the rest of the forum, otherwise neither my missus (or Gallus) may reach their half-century. I can only hope that you're all much better at telekinesis than I am.

When are people going to grow up and stop all this "psychic" crap?
(Probably at the same time they stop believing in fairytales, religion and the National Enquirer)

Spookily, when I logged on one of the 'bots browsing the forum was called Majestic-12 (Majestic-12 is a top secret US Govt. organisation dedicated to hiding evidence of UFO's - unless of course it's a bunch of faked documents by a UFO writer). But, to answer your question Shane, never I'm afraid. :(
