Living History

Susan caught my arrow in flight (grey line, to the right  roughly in line with the aircraft) – click to enlarge picture.
Today at archery practice, now part of our regular Saturday morning exercise regime for the last eight months, I got to try out Susan's Longbow.  I guess I was pulling it at around 22lbs, given my draw length.  It makes one respect the skill of those long dead British archers who fought at Crécy, Poitiers, and Agincourt.

If I ever have the need to write an archery scene in a novel I should be able to nail it.
