a new book wil be released by pen & sword. as always with pen & sword books, the release date can be taken with a little pinch of salt though...

Thanks for the info! Wonderful :) I'll have to get it for my library; Dan's book circulates quite well here.

Was reading Chariot by Arthur Cotterell this morning. Worth a look.

I am not convinced that cavalry followed chariots in all areas. Horse riding surely preceded it in some areas.

The Egyptians definitely used mounted men as scouts and messengers. They were called hpytw. I'm pretty sure I mentioned this in my book.
