Lance and Longbow Society Membership

Our aim is to promote the military history of the high and late middle ages, through to the early renaissance. We hope to appeal to all needs, including wargamers, re-enactors, amateur historians and heralds. We cover the period from 1040 to 1526 which is round about the time of the decline of the longbow in the early 16th century.


The Lance and Longbow Society has now been running for over 26 years and produces 6 issues of the highly praised journal The Hobilar per membership year, this may by more than 12 months. This contains articles and comments from the membership and is enhanced by a colour section.
