Byzantine England? Yes, Please. Also, Bows & Arrows

Britain, the Byzantine Empire, and the concept of an Anglo-Saxon 'Heptarchy': Harun ibn Yahya's ninth-century Arabic description of Britain
Also, apropos of nothing, did you know that when Sir Francis Drake raided the Spanish colonial town of Nombre de Dios,

and used them? Yes, dude. Yes. Drake planned on having his men use them before he left England, ordering "fine, roving shafts, very carefully reserved for the service".
