Are these stylized interpretations of bows in use then, or are they accurate depictions of the use of short D/R bows during the Norman conquest of Britain?

Hmmm. If their bows are as stylized as their shooting form, I’d say this isn’t an accurate representation of archery (my snooty nose is way up in the air). Reminds me of the old “navel salute” 😀
