The Longbow at the Time of the Norman Conquest
|The Longbow Challenge at Warwick Castle, England.|
Thank you, Regan!
What a treat.
I remember visiting Warwick Castle and seeing a demonstration of period archery. The archer told us that the insulting gesture of holding up two fingers in a "V" shape, was an offshot of the skill of English archers. The gesture showcased the strength in their bow-drawing fingers and was effectively an insult to the French that they shot.
Anyhow, without further ado, here is an excerpt from Regan's latest release.
