The Crossbow — The Ultimate Medieval Defensive Weapon?

Most people know about the English or Welsh longbow, which was the major factor in the English victories at Crecy, Poitiers and Agincourt during the 100 Years War. Most people aren't, however, aware that the main defensive weapon used to guard British castles and towns at the time was the crossbow. Mike Beazley looks at crossbows in use in Britain during the 14th and 15th centuries — using the inventory of Wigmore Castle produced after the death of Roger Mortimer, Earl of March, in 1330 as its starting point. You will have the opportunity to see and handle replica crossbows and bolts of the period.
