    Interesting with the blade type tips, that they didn’t put a little twist on them so they’d fly more straight, do more damage on the way in and be hell to get out.

    Bookmarking this for fantasy / medieval writing. I can be pretty stingy about keeping accuracy where I can.

        Gave it a quick skim and this pleases me. Its keyword searchable and also contains info on marching times, logistics, individual loads, all which are handy. Likewise with what constituted a proper invasion force and what smaller armies makeup were.

        Nicholas Corand was ordered to get 1,000 bows and 4,000 sheaves of arrows for John De Flete, “Keeper of the kings armour” allowing for a 96 : 1 ratio for people on campaign.

    Read a book on Agincourt a few years back, and the author said English longbow archers fired 630,000 arrows in the battle. Arrow-making was a big business in those days.

Play nice.
