Early archery

Posted on

This is a blog – I intend to keep a little separate from the others as I hope to expand upon it and add photos and videos as I progress.

I’ve only recently started making my own bows and arrows – trying to appreciate the problems faced by ancient peoples in doing so and to learn more about the history of archery.
