THE MEDIEVAL CROSSBOW: A Weapon Fit to Kill a King
Detailed and highly illustrated study of the medieval crossbow with two foci. The first is a technical study of the design and construction of the medieval crossbow, the many different kinds of crossbows used during the Middle Ages, and a consideration of the relationship between crossbows and art. The second describes the history of the crossbow, from its origins in ancient China to its decline in 16th-century Europe. Also explores the challenges in deciphering the crossbow's early medieval history as well as its prominence in warfare and sport shooting in the High and Later Middle Ages. Includes 50 color and black and white illustrations.1 vol, 224 pgs 2022 UK, PEN & SWORD
