    Hello Everyone

    I'm a South West UK Based re enactor, I'm putting kit together to be an arbalest in the mid 16th Century: think Mary Rose and the Prayerbook rebellion. I have a late medieval style crossbow from Quiverstock, spanned using a goat's foot, and I'm in the process of painting a pavise to go with it.

    I look forward to discussions and seeing what other people are up to.

    All the Best

    Welcome Geoff!  I'd never heard of the Prayerbook Rebellion until now.  Neither had my Brighton-born-and-raised partner.  Very interesting...
