17570RE: [SCA-Archery] Looking to apprentice
- Apr 1, 2005It is always hardest to break in a new trail. Compared to following the
tracks before you. You have set your feet on a great task. You may also be
the ground breaker (ether in your area or larger).I have found that the SCA
seem to have pockets of things.
If your not in that pocket then you have to travel to it. So you maybe out
of luck for someone that has done any ground breaking ahead of you being
close. On the other hand we now have the internet. Where we can exchange
Ideas from around the world. I hope you can find some help. but you might be
the one breaking the ground for the rest.
Actually this is what I have always done. I was started in archery by Rooke
and Edward the Grey but
did most of my learning on my own and with the help of mundane online groups
like the leatherwall
and the trad gang and paleoplanet and of course the Boyers bibles and a lot
of other books. Now I am
the one that local folks come to to learn from and I cant help but think
that I have missed so much.
My medieval research resources are poor and my search skills mostly limited
to the internet. I guess
you can say I am at the end of my ideas as to where to look and for what
Mostly I want to do better
and I want to concentrate on researching and recreating archery from the
early dark ages and
migration era germanic and norse cultures.
