Anybody knows from which manuscript it is and what year it is? I'm interested in it because of the recurved longbows. Also, if anybody has other pictures of archers using recurved bows in medieval Europe, please, post. Happy
Thanks!

The picture is from Lucerne chronicle. It's the battle of Grandson.

I taught it might be Schilling but I wasn't sure. Thanks!

Interesting, the archer seems to be bare legged.

I believe he is wearing white tights.
