That's excellent. The turf roof is a brilliant idea.

Very nice!
I assume the actor  Bill Hill is left handed? As JRRT never mentions such a thing.

Didn't even think of that. In that fanstastic scene when he rides down the line of he loyal riders, chopping the spearheads off (to even the odds for the other side, surely, very sportsmanlike) he obviously uses his right hand.

A great scene in the film,always get a lump in my throat. Incidentally he just taps the spears with the flat of the blade,acknowledgment,and respect(and not a little  rousing)for what is about to come.
Do you notice most have their shields slung?

Yes, I was just joking. :)

The shields, yes. I suppose it has more to do with practical film making concerns. I am curious how they were used with late Dark Age/Early Medieval cavalry.

Indeed.
A bit slow I’m afraid re. joke...And as for the shields,it’s actually pretty easy once you have learnt control with one hand,ahem ;)
