At the risk of sounding dumb how long was a clothyard shaft?
I assumed it to be 36 inches until I recently read Horace Ford's book. He claimed it to be 27 inches?
I have had a look on line and found varying measurements for a clothyard, 27, 36 and 37 inches?
The only reference I could find to an existing war arrow was 27 inches in length, this kind of puts pay to the war archer drawing his bow back to his ear?
Are there other ancient arrows in existence longer than 27 inches?
