- Jan 10, 2009Greetings,
I was wondering if anyone could help me with some information relating
to 14th century 'France', and archery?
My personae is occitan, which is a mountainous region of what is now
central France. I can't find any information to tell me what kind of
bow these people used, and what sort of wood it might have been made of.
Also, by pure chance I was gifted a recurve bow from an acquaintance
and I was thinking of just using this and going to archery practice but
I don't have any arrows. Should I just buy some regular arrows? Or do I
need some kind of special arrows? I know I want to be period, and I
like to make my own stuff, so maybe I should just make my own.
Looking at archery sites, I see a lot of different points and
materials. How do I know what size shafts to buy and how long they
should be? What points are used in archery practices and sca
competitions? And where should I buy my supplies?
