Dutch Warbow Society

Learn everything about the traditional handbow

The Dutch Warbow Society aims to promote and maintain the tradition of traditional hand bows.
We want to give owners of traditional handbows, huntingbows, medieval English warbows and other classic handbows the opportunity to meet other archers and learn from each other.
Among the activities we organize are archery events, clinics, and sharing information in various settings.
The Dutch Warbow Society Research team investigates archaeological finds.

During Castlefest our special Demonstration team will introduce you to the English Longbow. We will show the effect of this type of bow and arrows on various materials. They also show how groups of archers on the field were led by the duty commander.

You even get the opportunity to take a turn at shooting an arrow yourself, under supervision of our team. This is great fun for both children and adults.
