Medieval Warbow
Come and see the Free Company Aquitaine demonstrating the art and skill of the medieval warbow. Watch demonstrations of archery, see and learn about the arming of the knight and talk to the blacksmith/armourer, bowyer, spinster and surgeon about the medieval way of life.

From the Welsh wars of Edward I to the Battle of Agincourt, the longbow has been pivotal to the military prowess of England’s medieval armies, but how much do you really know about the bow and the men who used it with such deadly proficiency? Have you ever wondered at what age they were given their first bow; how they trained, how they fought or what they were paid? Perhaps you fancy testing your strength at drawing the bowstring to your ear, or wish to see how far they could shoot a bodkin-tipped arrow? Well now you can and more, The Free Company of Aquitaine are coming to Chiltern Open Air Museum on Saturday 31st August – Sunday 1st September 2019!
