Any longbow with wooden arrows and feather fletches can be used in accuracy events but they naturally favour stronger shooting

Warbow Wales will record the best senior shot for both the Lyverye Arrowe and Westminster Abbey Arrow for each species of period bow wood.  

Where possible, the images of the bow with dimensions, sections (via a contour gauge) and draw-weight will be displayed on the Warbow Wales website. Similarly, the data for the string will also be recorded.  

Over time, this will build an experimental archaeology database invaluable for bowyers and historians.
