      The sagas are full of archery. But you might also look at Alm, Josef, European Crossbows, Royal Armouries: Leeds, 1994. Excellent work from a museum and Swedish perspective. He covers things out side of Scandinavia and northern Europe little, if at all.

      Greetings Gentles,
      would you care to offer reccomendations for references releating to early period archery, particularly the scandinavian region? Any help would be appreciated. Not being an academician I have limited access to reference works and, consequently, difficulty in evaluating those I do have access to.
      Thanks in advance,
      Hollis
