You guys should see some of the garb at an SCA event.  Pretty amazing work from a bunch of history geeks.

Most authentic of all?  A costume made of dirt, fleas, lice, shit, and perhaps a tiny bit of ragged black linen.

History's fun!

In reality, the hierarchy of manufactured textiles by class (at least in Europe) would go: wool/linen (flax), raw silk/cotton.  As far as the portrayal of ancient/medieval cultures as dirty, louse ridden and shit covered is pretty far from the mark, in many cases.  The Celts of Europe and the British Isles, for example, were fans of regular bathing and had invented washing soap long before the Romans.  They were pretty meticulous groomers.

And the show is called Game of Thrones, not Game of Serfs.

I think jdv was referring to the people at an SCA event.

Actually, I was referring to you and Timmah at the beer tent last year.

History - it don't have to be ancient.

And GOT isn't supposed to be any sort of real history?  I mean, it's even less real than the world of Conan or Middle Earth, both of which are supposed to be "pre-histories", ain't it?

(is it even set on Earth?)

You must be confusing me with someone else.

Crow, great find. This show is insane.

jdv, no... Game of Thrones is not based on history... It's got dragons and shit. You might like it.

It's similar to Conan, an alternate European history. One thing that makes me think it's another planet entirely is that the length of the seasons change dramatically. However even on an alien world the seasons would cycle predictably so there is a chance that the long summers and winters are caused by some sort of magic spell.

A map of the unnamed "World" of GoT. It's pretty obviously modeled after England and Europe.

For comparison: Hyboria - based on Howard's stories.

Also, there is a giant wall of ice built untold centuries ago to keep *something* (The White Walkers) trapped in the North. It's a massive, undermanned fortress that extends across the top of the continent.

Well, I guess this guy ain't a Celt:


Apparently he hasn't bathed in 60 years and:

"More details of Haji’s unorthodox lifestyle include eating rotten meat, especially porcupine meat, and drinking dirty water. The Tehran Times explains:

His smoking pipe is filled with animal’s feces instead of tobacco and when he feels like smoking cigarettes he lights up a few of them at a time.

He wears a war helmet not to fight off the enemy in the battle field but to keep away from the bitterly cold winters."

Those moderates, they slay me.
