Re: [SCA-Archery] Where is SCA archery going
- It seems my point got lost somewhere along the way. I can only blame myself
for not communicating in a clear fashion. No disparaging comments were meant
towards those that choose to recreate the golden age of the English longbow.
Yes, there are a number of excellent researchers on this list. For example,
you mention Carolus, whose degree in anthropology makes him an excellent
researcher of past cultures and technology. I know well the quality of his
research from when we worked together on that long lost publication "The
Caidan Archer". With such quality scholarship on the list, I can go back to
lurking quietly then.

A side note:
There are several on his list (such as Geoffrei, Kaz, Carolus and others )
that we must thank for their insite and willingness to share their
scholarship with us and we would be well advised to listen and learn. They
have been very patient with the less scholarly among us, sometimes
subjects several times in a short course and share what to them must be
common knowledge for the betterment of their fellow archers. I personnaly
thank them for the inspiration to persue the difficult task of medieval
archery, scholastic and otherwise.
