Thought that I'd share this, for those that don't know about it;
A presentation of british effigies, from ca 1200-1400

Edit: fixed link

"this [fight] looks curious, almost like a game. See, they are looking around them before they fall, to find a dry spot to fall on, or they are falling on their shields. Can you see blood on their cloths and weapons? No. This must be trickery."
-Reidar Sendeman, from King Sverre's Saga, 1201

I have moved this topic to the Off-topic Talk forum.

Please note the description for this forum:

"Discussions of general history and other miscellaneous topics relating to arms and armour that do not specifically fit our other forums"

Since this is simply pointing people to a link, the Off-Topic Talk forum is the best location.

Thank you.

Happy

ChadA

Ah. Yes. sorry. Fixed it.

Elling - what a fantastic resource! I have spent more time than I care to admit cruising the internet for pictures of effigies, and have come up with a fraction of those on this site. Can't thank you enough! Much appreciated. Big Grin
