A bonus episode from the whole team, discussing Dierk Hagedorn and Christian Tobler's recent work.

Dierk deciphered a crossed out section of the 1452 fencing book, which had previously been overlooked.

It explains how a certain technique had been used against Hans Talhoffer in front of a Duke, slicing Hans in the hand and hitting him in the head.

Not only is this evidence that actual RDL techniques were used in fencing, it also ties RDL to Hans Talhoffer the historical person for the first time.
