Great stuff, thank you so much!
I remembered the Livrustkammaren reserve collection!
It is especially astonishing to see the wooden bow and the crossbow that looks as if it were yet as early as ca. 1400, which of course it is not!
The bow decoration of the crossbow in post #149 much resembles that of a Romanian crossbow in the museum of Bukarest; see post #6.
Please hang on, Micke!
