Medieval soldiers on the job
La salle des gardes, Château Fort de Sedan, Sedan, France

Life was tough for medieval soldiers on the job. Being shot by an arrow from a crossbow must have hurt. No matter where it hit, it could cause a lot of bleeding. And in the hands of a good crossbowman, it could be terrifyingly accurate. That accuracy diminishes the more the crossbowman is distracted from behind.
