The History of Archery

Tuesday 11th November 2014

It is as old as time,

From pre history to the 21st century,
the enormous power of the bow and
the precise accuracy of the arrow
have been part of the human story.

The universal weapon of the primeval hunt
and traditional warfare,
has evolved into one of the worlds most evocative
and demanding sports.


It illustrates our history,

It reveals our human qualities,

it reflects our dreams and aspirations,

It's demands of mind and body
are metaphors for the challenges of life.

Its harmony and elegance are things of beauty.

Power and precision

Strength and subtlety
Passion and perseverance

Dedication and devotion

Intensity and Integrity.


The ultimate sporting challenge
