Ancient Warfare Answers episode (208): How can we imagine ancient cavalry charges?
Ľuboš asks, how can we imagine cavalry battles and mostly charges? We read that for example, Alexander charged with his companions into enemy formations. I ask this because stirrups had not been invented, I presume that the rider would not be very stable, so I would not expect the charges like that of the medieval era. Enjoy the podcast?
