23418Re: archery illustrations: Shooting Technique???
- Sep 5, 2007Looking at the first illustration from the Maj. Bible:
Any thoughts as to the shooting style on that crossbow? Holding it
behind the nut, holding the bow part oriented vertically, or the
behind-the-head release? For an archery tradition culture, the
vertical oriented bow, especially in a castle defense situation where
you want your archers lined up close together, that seems plausible,
but I have my questions as to artistic license/ignorance with the
other two parts.
