Saul calls upon Israel The Israelites rally
Saul calls upon the Israelites to fight the Ammonites.  Details show: 1 -first viewing of a cleaver style of butcher-knife 2 -uncertain as to what these golden belt attachments are, but worth looking into. The Israelites rally their support behind Saul.  Details show:  1 -fantastic view of period footwear 2 -nice example of a wire wrapped grip of a sword3 -heater-shield with a "Lion Rampant" upon it.  4 -a heraldic type of flag, called a "Banner", attached (in this case) to the head of a spear.  Typically, they were vertical in orientation (as seen), usually 2 "units" wide by 3 "units" high, and represented a king, baron, overload or knight.  It preceded him in battle as a sign of his feudal rights.  5 -a foot-soldier dressed in a quilted-leather jerkin with a scalloped bottom on top of a quilted-leather coat, also a leather gorget (neck protection).  Also, you can see the padded arming-cap under the helm.  6 -another great example of an Overgirth ~ a second saddle girth which went over the saddle to provide extra security during aggressive activities.  Very common on military cavalry (the primary girth can be seen in it's normal place under the saddle panels).
