Quote:Stefanos,

Yesterday evening at 9pm on the History Channel there was a digging for the truth episode about Troy. On there, the guy went on a reproduction bronze age chariot and shot arrows and threw spears at a target with decent accuracy. So, it is possible to perform these acts from a moving chariot, the only problem being that his target wasn't moving also.


Cheers,
Adam

We know those things can be done, but Gioi was discussing using the chariot in re-enactment against people, I think, which requires much more control.

Thanks, Paul.

It'd be nice to have them around!

And Gioi, the photo you linked to must have been mounted in PhotoShop, don't you think? Confusedhock:
