Historical Reconstructions Series Part I

Jean Claude Golvin

I recently spent a night being bewildered by the work of this gentleman.  Jean-Claude Golvin is a French archaeologist and architect. He specializes in the history of Roman amphitheatres and has published hundreds of reconstruction drawings of ancient monuments.

More of these to come…

Historical Warrior Illustration Series Part XXV

Mariusz Kozik

Man it’s been a while since I was able to add anything to this collection. Now that I’m back I’ll be updating my collection on a regular bases.  Hope you keep enjoying the resource.  Mariusz Kozik of course has much of his material out there already, but I figured it doesn’t hurt to have him here as well along side all these other greats.  And go figure he has done graphics for one of my favorite gaming series, Total War.

Hero

When I first saw this movie I was overwhelmed with its colors and its story.  Many of these sweeping epics that China has produced in the recent years have really blown my mind.  While I’m not sure about its historical value the film is definitely filled with plenty of battle scenes.

The Eagle

I’ve been buying the historical fiction books that cover this time period and the stories of the ninth legion, but until I have a chance to read them I guess this movie will have to supplement my desires for this material.

World Without End

I’m not sure if it was because I stop having regular cable television or if this series from Ken Follett books was just not promoted as much as Pillars of the Earth, but I discovered it once it was complete and liked it just as much as its predecessor.

Pillars of the Earth

I wouldn’t quantify this as a warriors film, but I would add it to my collection of novel adaptions set in a historical time period that I enjoy watching.
