A rather educational thread Ian, no doubt .
Being its core arms and armor collecting, it would be wonderful to illustrate it with pictures of the famous Mongol bow, their primary weapon; if ever there are examples out there (museums ?) that endured the passing of time. Or we have to remedy their inexistence with period artists depictions and read about its mysticism. I like the episode in that Genghis Khan's nephew Esungge, was such a marksman that he managed to shoot a target at 335 alds (536 meters).
