      The jury is still out on that. Just as fighters would hang their sword
      belt over their shoulder and saw that eventually evolve into the baldric,
      the tapestry evidence does not definitively show the use of a designed
      back quiver and not a hip quiver on a belt slung over the shoulder
      rather than buckled in its designed position. To date we have no
      conclusive evidence of a quiver designed for use on the back. Keep up
      the research guys and gals, we're way further ahead than we were a few
      years ago.

      In service to the dream
