Stu BS: Henry VIII - The Mind of a Tyrant (77* d) RE: BS: Henry VIII - The Mind of a Tyrant 15 Nov 17

Fascinating stuff. I'm learning from this thread, thanks to all the contributors. I find Tudor times a fascinating part of our history. Corrected on the football. Never liked the plantagenets anyway, most of them hardly spoke the lingo.

Some of the longbows on the Mary Rose had a draw of around 180lbs, which is phenomenal; I have a longbow with a 50lb draw and thats pretty powerful (much more so than comparable composite bows) but I would never be able to draw a 180lb bow (I have always lacked upper body strength). It must have been awesome to see a volley of arrow loosed and terrifying to be in the receiving end of that volley.
