My particular interest right now is in historic (ie 1300s to Victorian) fletching, what shapes were prevalent and what characteristics did they have. But I am sure other interesting avenues will present as I explore this space

Found a bunch of digitised books online from Book index

Didn't take long to read most of these, and learnt some fun stuff but the links were quite limited in scope. Not finding much else online (or in libraries nearby), not sure where to go next, welcome ideas

thank you :)

WRT that first paragraph, for the medieval period I guess it was true, archery was a commoners thing and commoners didn't write things down - but the Victorians were a very inquisitive bunch
