      Greetings Gentles,
      would you care to offer reccomendations for references releating to early period archery, particularly the scandinavian region? Any help would be appreciated.

      Hollis

        In my opinion, the owner of that list is very well qualified to help you with authenticity questions. Were I an early period archer in the Scandinavian regions of the Knowne World, I'd consult her.
