Overview
A Leading Expert on Traditional Archery Offers Insight Into How the Longbow Was Drawn from Medieval Sources to Modern Recreations
Soar s book "The Crooked Stick"] is indispensible. Bernard Cornwell, "New York Times" bestselling author
Relying on more than fifty years experience in archery, historian Hugh D. H. Soar reflects on how the longbow was drawn and shot across the centuries through examining the design of the bow and early literature about the bow, combined with his and his colleagues applied knowledge using replica bows. No complete medieval longbow has survived, but those found aboard the Tudor warship "Mary Rose "provide the best archaeological evidence to the possible construction of the medieval bow. Contemporary treatises written about the proper manner of shooting the bow, together with the resurgence in interest and construction of replica bows beginning in the late sixteenth century that form part of the author s collection provide the basis for this work. "How to Shoot the Longbow: A Guide from Historical and Applied Sources" is a fascinating and practical look at the use of a legendary invention."
