Good work Gents!  As mentioned keeping an ancient tradition alive and having a place to meet is great!  I am of English heritage  and although not considered English it still feels good to see how my people lived and survived in ancient times.  Thank you for sharing your club and what you guys do!

Time, dedication, cuts, tons of broken rock, a wife, and perhaps a few girlfriends are some of what it takes in becoming a skilled flint knapper!!!

A little update.
Primitive Archery is happily growing in the UK.
PAAS continues to meet up, have fun, explain atlatl and archery to the public and sometimes play with other interesting things.
A Prmitive Champs has been a well attended shoot for a couple of years now, a fun day then an archery shoot competition on the following day. Might be a longer event next year running Thursday through to Tuesday allowing time for some serious bow making etc.
The Primitive Class is well establshed within the National Field Archery Society with more and more people shooting in it, with many if not most of them shooting bows and arrows they have made.
There will hopefuly be at least one, maybe two bowyers meets arranged by other people around the UK.
In short, primitive archery is healthy and growing!  :)
