    Icon3 9th century Carolingian soldiers

    Carolingian soldiers from the Stuttgart Psalter, Paris, 1st half of the 9th century.



    This is probably the source used by Ian Heath for most of the Carolingians in Armies of the Dark Ages 600-1066.
    I would be interested in English captions for these, particulary which biblical people are portrayed as horse-archers.

    I haven't been able to include a link to the manuscript at the museum because of the [] characters used.

    It's commitment, I'll give him that. Not sure what the point is though. They're all from the same website, which is presumably his?

    If you can't see any point then don't bother looking.
