Lars Andersen - archery and some

Salve,
the internet world has been swept a debate caused by the video of master archer Lars Andersen. what a skill on this archer! But... there are problems with his historical claims and mysterious pronouncements.

There have been some level-head, informed responses, eg by Mike Loades,[1] or by schola gladiatoria, and this one is a 'nice' critique so I am sharing it with you.

so ponder while watching and perhaps do get a bow and some arrows and do go practising - it is great, I assure you


[1]
Mike Loades  - I enjoyed  his book on the English  Long Bow and the documentary on the Egyptian New Kingdom chariotry

Ps.
per archery  I own a 55 pound horse Korean bow and enjoy my archery whenever I can, including hunting with it.
