Archery and Thrown Weapons
We invite you to participate in this ancient tradition!
Because of our historical interests we focus on archery as it was before 1600. This means using natural materials and medieval equipment, such as wooden arrows, longbows, horsebows, recurve bows, and crossbows. We do not some modern archery equipment such as compound bows or modern style crossbows, in keeping with this historical focus.
Our current archery practices are held near the Ohio University campus. You can check the Archery Range Map for the current time and place of practices. We have loaner gear for anyone who wishes to participate but doesn’t have equipment.
When it comes to a martial activity, Thrown Weapons is the one that the most people can do. If you have at least one partially working arm then you can participate! Come learn to throw axes, knives, or spears in a safe, controlled environment.
