A fascinating insight into the activities of one of the UK's premier re-enactment groups. Demonstrating the use and power of the traditional long bow, they perform at events around the country. Woodlands TV met them at the Weald Wood Fair where people of all ages could "have a go". Neil Eddiford describes the ethos of the group, and the power of the arrows which can penetrate chain mail or armour. There are different ways of shooting including "roving" in woodlands choosing different targets at unmarked distances.
