Re: Looking for a quote

I agree. I suspect the sentiment was common and said in many ways by many - it's just who history chooses to atribute a quote to is the one remembered

I'm assuming that is addressed at me

I know nothing about it - not my period - I saw an article that I thought might be of interest to some people on the forum

How stupid of me

Re: 13th C. Farm

Take a look at the Winchester Pipe Roll mentioned above and you will see that cattle and oxen are treated as two entirely different beasts. This was normal practice but it was not new, since the Romans took exactly the same view. Latin vacca is a cow, taurus is a bull and bos is an ox (either sex)....

Re: Medieval Longbow Draw Weights

Assuming the MR bows are to be used from the ship - is there a possibility of a longer effective range being practical from a ship than on a battle field due to lack of cover / obstruction ?
