H2: Granadan infantry crossbowman, late 15th century
Here a crossbowman aims a weapon which has features that can be traced back to the late Roman crossbow. His dagger is of the 'ear' form used on both sides of the religious frontier, while the large wooden mantlet may have been a distinctive 15th-century Granadan type. (Main sources: unknown romantic legend, painted ceiling, mid-14th century, in situ Sala de la Justicia, Alhambra Palace, Granada; Conquest of the Kingdom of Granada, carved wooden panels, late 15th century, in situ Choir of Cathedral, Toledo, Spain)
