This is so perfectly Tintin. I’m looking forward to the next movie.

mediumaevum:

Stairs in medieval fortifications were constructed to contain trick or stumble steps. These were steps that had different rise height or thread depth from the rest and would cause anyone running up the stairs to stumble or fall, so slowing down the attackers’ progress.

Also, notice how the stairs curve upwards clockwise? Because most soldiers used their swords in their right hands, the ones down below would have a hard time striking around that central column, while the defenders would easily have room to strike. Not to mention the advantage of being higher than the opponent.

BOLD WHAT APPLIES TO YOU

Anyone who wishes may consider themselves tagged!

allieinarden sent: I did some research. The clip is from a movie called The Nanny Diaries where Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson played the leads. (agggh I wish there were an Avengers 4th of July thing though!)

Ugh, okay. Thanks for explaining! And thanks to Valia and Morfinwen, too. Good thing I know people who know this stuff or I’d be forever confused.  :P
