Principles of Traditional Archery

Principles of Traditional Archery

A completely new way of thinking about traditional archery takes shape in the pages of this book.

Author: Thomas Grissom

ISBN: 0865349487

Category: Archery

Page: 236

A completely new way of thinking about traditional archery takes shape in the pages of this book. The emphasis throughout is on the basic principles that govern the design, performance, and use of all forms of traditional bows and arrows. Here are discussed both the practical as well as the technical considerations behind the choices faced by every archer in selecting and using the tools of the sport. The design of the bow-and the arrow-are analyzed in terms of the underlying principles that determine their performance and use. The concept of an ideal bow and an ideal arrow are introduced as useful ways of thinking about the limitations of real bows and arrows. The important parameters of the bow are identified and a straightforward way of measuring them is described. The effect of draw weight on performance is examined with a view to injecting some realism into the perennial question of how much draw weight is enough. A separate chapter is devoted to the problem of distance shooting and another to clearing up the confusion surrounding the topic of arrow penetration. The effects of variations in arrow straightness, spine, and weight are analyzed to answer the question of when better arrows finally become good enough. The techniques of shooting and an in-depth discussion of the causes, and cures, of target panic are presented. And finally a separate chapter is devoted to a primer on the analytical design of bow limbs. This is a book for all serious archers-and bowyers alike-whether their interest is bow hunting, field and target archery, or bow design, and whether they are newcomers to the sport or experienced archers. The chapters on shooting are among the best ever written and alone make the book invaluable. There is something here to enhance the understanding and practice of archery for all who love and shoot traditional bows and arrows. THOMAS GRISSOM has been a lifelong archer. A writer and a physicist, he is the author of several works of fiction and non-fiction, including four collections of poems also published by Sunstone Press.

The Southeastern Woodland Archery Tradition A Living Aboriginal Material Culture Tradition

The Southeastern Woodland Archery Tradition  A Living Aboriginal Material Culture Tradition

This work stands as a unique and innovative work presenting a material culture tradition from the perspective of a number of disciplines as well as focusing on it as a living component of culture.

This dissertation explores the extensive history of the Southeastern Woodland material culture tradition of archery over a span of approximately 3000 years. Information gathered from an assortment of disciplines including archaeology, ethnography, ethnohistory, material culture studies, and history is integrated into this paper and presented as a consolidated work. The archery tradition is a living material culture tradition which continues to be practiced in many Indigenous Southeastern Woodland communities today. This tradition has an extensive history which reconnects Indigenous peoples of contemporary time to traditions practiced in more ancient times. Through the pages of this paper the ancient aboriginal tradition of archery is connected with the contemporary practices in a number of Indigenous Southeastern woodland communities. This paper begins by looking at the pre-Columbian archery tradition through archaeology then moves through colonial documents until the focus is on the 21st century where information presented is primarily ethnographic, ethnohistoric and oral tradition. A number of rare and previously unknown archery related artifacts, such as the Wheeler arrow, are presented in this paper. The Wheeler arrow (the oldest known intact Southeastern Woodland arrow in existence today) has not been examined in scholarship until its presentation within this work. Other rare archery related material culture objects are also presented. In concluding chapters, the contemporary Southeastern Woodland archery tradition is the focus. Transcription from interviews with a number of Southeastern Woodland bow and arrow makers from the Cherokee, Choctaw, Caddo and Catawba communities are provided. This provides special information on the diverse techniques still being used to make traditional Southeastern Woodland bows and arrows. This information is important as it provides contextual information about the process of manufacturing traditional Indigenous archery equipment. This paper presents the archery tradition as an integral and persisting part of Southeastern Woodland cultural identity. Further attention is given to how this tradition has become integrated as a symbol of Indigenous autonomy and the resistance to colonization. Here the ancient tradition of Indigenous archery is presented as a relevant component of 21st century Southeastern Woodland cultures helping Indigenous people remain who they are. This work stands as a unique and innovative work presenting a material culture tradition from the perspective of a number of disciplines as well as focusing on it as a living component of culture.
