Archery Law of 1363 (1/6)

List item

Edward III, also known as Edward of Windsor, stands as one of the more well-to-do monarchs of medieval Britain. His reign is particularly well remembered for a campaign of great military successes and for restoring law and order to England after the disastrous reign of his predecessor, Edward II. What is less known about the king, however very much a fact, is that he introduced a law that made it compulsory for every man in England to practice archery for two hours on Sunday, under the watch of the local clergy.
