battle of Agincourt, 600th commemoration [in miniature]
For the 600th commemoration of the battle of Agincourt, the National Museum of Arms and Armours [within the Tower of London] has commissioned a diorama of the battle that saw the French nobility decimated by English longbows, muddy fields, their heavy armours, and lust for glory…
The Royal Armouries have a blog describing the construction of this impressive diorama, which measures 4m x 2m and involves 4,400 figurines. And over 1,000 arrows stuck into the ground. Never forget the arrows!
At a personal level, besides a fascination for diorama [that started when I saw a D-Day diorama in one Norman museum as a kid] I had been told after The Accident that cutting some fingers was customary for captured bowmen, but this entry in Wikipedia writes it off as a myth.
