      An Ascham is the archery equivalent of a gun rack. It is a cabinet for holding your bows and archery tackle. They are named after Roger Ascham but don t date

        archery tackle. They are named after Roger Ascham but don't date back that far. The one in
        our photos section is a portable version. For a more traditional Victorian Ascham, check out

          James, thank you for posting the picture of the Victorian Ascham. I've been thinking one would be a nice addition to the house someday, and this will fuel my desire to build it (perhaps not quite as fancy as the one shown)! I still wish some others in the group who have built SCA Aschams would add photos of their's to the album I posted. It would be nice to see how others may have modified the design.
