Arbalest Point

This arbalest point – donated by Mr Nigel Pullman, Master Leatherseller 2010-11 – is on display in Farmers’ and Fletchers’ Hall, the meeting place of the Worshipful Company of Fletchers.  It was supplied to the Free Cities of the Holy Roman Empire for their defence in the Hussite Wars and dates from 1420 to 1434.  Arbalests were large crossbows and first came into use in the 12th century.
