14228Re: [SCA-Archery] Back quiver VS. Hip quiver- further study
- Jan 28, 2004The 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
