Hungarian Archery - Revival of a long

lost tradition
"A sagittis hungarorum libera nos Domine!" (Modena, 924 A.D.)
- in a rough translation: "Lord, save us from the arrows of the
Hungarians". For a long time that was about the only thing that
came to most Hungarians' mind about Hungarian archery. No
wonder, with the introduction of firearms in the 16th century,
archery in Hungary disappeared completely. What was left of it
was not much more than fragments of bone and some rusty
arrowheads buried along with their owner's bodies in the 10th
century. Yet still, it seems to be enough to reconstruct and
revive this long lost tradition.
