  1. Actually, contrary to the description from the webpage of Axel Guttman robbery collection, it is not a sword-belt but a feminine belt... I found a good view of the transversal crest
  2. For the Celtiberians, I have found data showing the presence of the donkey, at least in Upper Rio Tajo. During the Iron Age. I don't have found data about the Lusitani or the Vascones. Both are not really affordable. It is thought that the local landowners or small chiefs supply cattle and horses to their clients or vassals. Cattle are used to do the hard work in the fields. They are not eaten by lower class people. However, I don't think merchants and traders were unable to get those. A trader actor with a horse-driven or cattle-driven chariots are both possible. For the Gauls, we know they used a kind of harvester/reaper during the iron age and that the Romans adopted the thing during the Roman Empire. That could be a special technology for the Gauls to research.
  3. It seems that the donkeys were already in place during the Iron Age for the Iberians on the coast thanks to the Phenicians. I agree. For the trader, since it is lightweight, I would say the horse should be used. For the Celtic rotary mill, either we question the whole concept (because it has major historical flaws like other buildings) but it means that we should also consider an alternative or modify the balance. Or we keep the concept and we use cattle. Technically most of the rotary mills are hand driven but among the Gauls, cattle is generally used for hard work.
  4. At my knowledge, the cattle are used to do the labor in the field. This a meal for the wealthy, not the farmers. The donkey is attested to the transport only during the Roman era in Gaul, probably because it is something inherited from the Romans: For the moment I see only a document saying the introduction of the Donkey and of the Mule by the Romans at end of the iron age. I will check that in one of my book with more archeological data. Edit: Nope. No donkey, neither any mule. I read an entire chapter about animal domestication over the territory of the Senones, these species are not mentioned.
  5. In the case of their video about Celtic warrior, this is a high-level of never seen bulls**t. The material from this video is clearly based on the first Europa Barbarorum mod on RTW, which is very very very problematic for the barbarians factions.
  6. La guerra en el Michoacán prehispánico en el Posclásico Tardío. Economía política, Estado y sociedad tarasca (2019) La presente investigación aborda el tema de la guerra practicada por las sociedades indígenas del antiguo Michoacán en la época prehispánica, durante el Posclásico Tardío (1200-1522), especialmente las guerras de conquista emprendidas por el linaje gobernante de los Uacúsecha. Con estas acciones bélicas, los tarascos lograron imponer su dominio político, explotar la fuerza de trabajo, extraer los excedentes de bienes materiales que se producían e imponer su ideología, sobre vastos territorios del occidente de Mesoamérica habitados por un gran multitud de pueblos de diverso origen étnico, lingüístico y cultural, constituyéndose como una de las entidades políticas de organización estatal más importantes al momento de la llegada de los europeos en el siglo XVI. La investigación inicia con la exposición de un marco teórico-metodológico que propone una imagen interpretativa del pasado cuyo eje articulador es el materialismo histórico, complementado por otras posiciones teóricas pertinentes. Las fuentes analizadas durante la investigación fueron documentos de valor etnohistórico ya publicadas, algunos documentos de archivo inéditos o poco conocidos, así como información producto de las investigaciones arqueológicas. Así mismo, fue necesario elaborar un nuevo análisis sobre el desarrollo histórico, la economía política y sociedad tarasca, que permitieran contemplar una imagen más completa sobre la guerra y todo lo que a ella concierne por parte de la sociedad indígena en el occidente mesoamericano. Los capítulos siguientes están dedicados al análisis de la sociedad tarasca, detallando el fenómeno de la guerra de forma multidisciplinar, enfocándose la atención en aspectos como la cosmovisión que justificaba la guerra, los tipos de guerra practicados, el ejército tarasco, la panoplia de los guerreros, la indumentaria e insignias, órdenes militares, rituales de guerra, las guerras tarasco-mexicas, la expansión a las cuatro partes del mundo y las defensas de las fronteras, las estrategias y tácticas de los campos de batalla del Michoacán antiguo, concluyendo con la participación de los guerreros michoacanos en la conquista de la Nueva España en la primera mitad del siglo XVI. https://www.academia.edu/38685887/La_guerra_en_el_Michoacán_prehispánico_en_el_Posclásico_Tardío._Economía_política_Estado_y_sociedad_tarasca_2019_?fbclid=IwAR1eZnS-cDv9IRY3AC-_kji1afzcwwWf3lBD4KghnoiUiVoAa4zLNJkFsl8
  7. Another account [7.22] To the extraordinary valor of our soldiers, devices of every sort were opposed by the Gauls; since they are a nation of consummate ingenuity, and most skillful in imitating and making those things which are imparted by any one; for they turned aside the hooks with nooses, and when they had caught hold of them firmly, drew them on by means of engines, and undermined the mound the more skillfully on this account, because there are in their territories extensive iron mines, and consequently every description of mining operations is known and practiced by them. They had furnished, more over, the whole wall on every side with turrets, and had covered them with skins. Besides, in their frequent sallies by day and night, they attempted either to set fire to the mound, or attack our soldiers when engaged in the works; and, moreover, by splicing the upright timbers of their own towers, they equaled the height of ours, as fast as the mound had daily raised them, and countermined our mines, and impeded the working of them by stakes bent and sharpened at the ends, and boiling pitch and stones of very great weight, and prevented them from approaching the walls.
  8. Seems good. Maybe Cassiuellaunos instead of Cassiuellaunus for the ancient hero of the Catafalque.
  9. I was responding to the opinion from your link. It pisses me off to see people complaining while buying the game. I really disliked the direction took in the Total War series because of restrictive modding and lies from the developers about it. I choose to boycott the series since Empire, I never gave a cent to them since. From the previous HD you mean? Yeah I know they did something excessive with the language filter, they will probably change that.
  10. If you don't like, you don't buy. Personally, I see AoE2 DE as an improvement.
  11. Probably digging underneath yes. But still, it is impressive in regards of the murus gallicus and their solidity.
  12. Actually even the Gauls did it.
