Assyrian chariot - reconstruction in progress

 Salvete Omnes,


as you may already have known I am a big proponent of reconstruction and historic reenactment.

A friend of mine from Poland, Kuba Mikolajczuk who is a historian, history enthusiast and journalist, provided me with the link to this Youtube content creator from Australia.   Ancient Assyrian Props & Costumes of - thanks Kuba!

This gentleman - Donald Barkho - from Australia is working on a reconstruction of an Assyrian (Neo-Assyrian Empire) chariot  - Assurnasirpal II-style, as he calls it. And  here is a video link to the progress in his reconstruction - very interesting study in actual construction and potential issues while suing.
