    I made a comment about a traditional long bow in another thread. That lead me to look at the use of the long bow, which took me to the Hundred Year's War.

    It is fascinating and distressing history - fascinating because of the complexities of human interaction, and distressing because of the violence wrought upon humanity.


    from Wikipedia


    Mentioned in the background of this era - Salic law or Lex Salica - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salic_Law - from which we apparently get patrilineal descent. (the Wikipedia article needs improvement)

    Perhaps better sources on Lex Salica -



    Some earlier history


    For the hardcore historian - a text
