If I have understood Robert Hardy correctly it's a while since I read his book, I think he suggests that the medieval Great War Bow may have developed by combining the bowmaking techniques of the Monmouthshire Welsh with the use of yew as the material.
In 1970, signs of his interest in traditional bowmaking emerged in a series of articles he wrote on the construction of wooden longbows.
