*Archery Law*

All English males over the age of14 will carry out 2 hours of longbow
practice each weekend; this will be supervised by the local church
official. This law dates as far back as the middle ages when there was no
regular British army and the local gentry were ordered to train a quota of
knights, archers, infantry, etc.

The archery range in each area was set up in a safe area, usually at the
bottom of a field, generally called a ‘bottom’ and many of these sites
still exist, such as ‘Trotters Bottom’ in Hertfordshire.

In the city of York, it is quite legal to murder a Scotsman within the
ancient city walls of York if he is carrying a bow and arrow. Excluding

In Hereford you may shoot a Welsh person all day, but only on Sunday, and
only with a Longbow, as long as he is in the Cathedral Close.

In Chester you can only shoot a Welsh person with a bow and arrow inside
the city walls and only after midnight.
