Feel the burn in your arm as you force the longbow to bend backwards, bringing the fletch close to your cheek until it tickles. Then release, and your arrow cuts the air towards your target: a wild deer in the forests of old Europe; your enemy at Agincourt; an invader unlucky enough to run into your line of sight; or the money purse of the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Archery groups will be running throughout the two days of the Faire. Watch experienced marksmen demonstrate their skill, then try your hand at shooting a longbow in a traditional archery range operated by the Medieval Archery Society
