Historical Practices in Horsemanship - finally here
I write this post in English because the topic is not one but actually two books in English.
A couple of years ago, I attended an online congress with the focus on horses in history. I did not give a paper, but still got the chance to contribute to a book - Historical Practices in Horsemanship and Equestrian Sports (Eds A. Ropa & T. Dawson. Trivent Publishing). I decided re-write and expand my study of the horses of the Bayeux Tapestry, because I wanted to have it published in English.
And now - the book is published! I still have not laid hands on it, but I have browsed through the final proof and it is so very exciting! Papers about ancient DNA, medieval horse training, horse women in Ancient Greece, warhorses in Medieval England... and more. I, who been doing my horse-related research in my spare time for almost two decades, working alone for most of this time is so grateful and happy that I found this network of researchers.
Furthermore, I have been asked to review a book for an future issue of Cherion:
Seems really interesting and I am really looking forward to read this book. It was published in 2021 and is available from Amazon etc.
