    Now I just have to share this Amazon Book review that I just read. I've mentioned a time or two that I am slowly working my way through this book I found in a thrift shop, The Pilgrim Church by E.H. Broadbent first published in 1931. As I'm now up to the early/mid 1400's in the book, I was so...

    For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying...

    Hi all, there is a discussion going on about tapered shafts and people wondered which company, and when, was the first to manufacture a tapered shaft. Was it Easton? Or have there been others around before ACE and the alikes?

    After doing some research and also attempting to engage in some less controversial subjects, I would like to present some information concerning a progression of the presentation of the Holy scriptures as the early church evolved. Keep in mind that this is simply a synopsis and much is left...

    We often speak of grains of weight (GPI, 125 grain heads, 45 grain powder charges etc.) but why do we use this measurement, which works out to 1/7000th of a pound? The answer goes back to ancient times where the average weight of a grain of cereal was the standard for weight. References are...

    I've been meaning to scan this in for a while now. It's an article on the history of the I.B.O. that appeared in the July-August 1994 edition of 3D Times Magazine.

    For historical curiosity, what came first? The ilf or the modern three piece take down. I assumed both may have taken the takedown idea from the old compound. I cant remember the model but I had a three piece Widow with metal riser back about 1981 and was told it was from early 70's ...

    I don't want to spoil it, so I won't say what he just told me he shot for his first 60 arrows at USArchery indoor nationals, but he is doing things with a modern WA-legal barebow right now that no man has ever done, period. Just incredible. I hope everyone who is a true fan of barebow...

    OK .. seeing as I'm laid up wth a sore back and I can't shoot for a couple of weeks, I thought I'd entertain myself by posting some random pictures associated with and to archery history. There's no order or topic, they're just pictures on my computer that I like for one reason or another that...

    As per title really Where does the three fingers under string holding technique come from? I've been told it's North American, possibly 'invented' post first world war. Is it really that modern? No ancient / older cultures around the world used it? Why?

    When I look at a number of primitive bow designs ranging from English longbows to Asian composite bows, I notice all of them lack a shelf as we see on modern bows (at least as far as I understand). This makes me wonder if the shelf is a relatively recent innovation? I can imagine ancient...
