This guy compared the injuries suffered by recipients in several battles to strike patterns of modern practitioners of European Modern Arts. Very interesting. Do we need a new Hit Location chart in RQ? (j/k)
YES! We do! ...
Well not really. By focusing on the Warrior caste, the results are probably somewhat skewed. Warriors, being much more highly skilled (100%+?) were much more capable of targeting their blows than their less experienced cannon fod.... compatriots in the Fyrd shield wall.
What would be really interesting, but probably impossible to know, is how many of those head shot victims were wearing helmets at the time they received them. My guess is that like modern professional soldiers, the old timers probably often took off their helmets, or simply didn't wear them, because of heat, fatigue, vision, etc.

Thanks for sharing both the article and, by extension, the website. Seriously fascinating reading.

The UK tv series called Medieval Dead...
This sounded interesting so I tracked it down. I have only seen the first two episodes so far but its really pretty cool and informative. I only found four episodes and assume that's all they made?

Has the shows on demand for another 12 days or so, not sure if it's limited by area so you might have to anonymise your location if not in the UK.
