    Why do you need entire units of pole-arms behind the front row as a large wall block?

    This is something I've been wondering about. Obviously spearmen, pikemen, and other pole arms were designed to fight cavalry and also they were cheaper weapons to equip and they were easier to train with. So it makes sense for militia. With that said I am wondering about spear and other pole...

    Does DNA chart shows Turks were Mongoloid ? (Turkey, Chinese, Mongol , Kazakh, White)

    I feel like DNA charts can really tell us histories that happened 1000 years ago. Turkey was originally called Anatolia and only became Turkic when Central Asian Turks conquered it in the 11th century. The Turkic migrants were a minority but were a elite group, they assimilated every ethnic...
