Bonjour,
Je fais des recherches depuis 20 ans sur l'archerie primitive (j'ai crée une -petite-expo/musée avec mon mari).
Vous avez une photo, la n°61 ( dyn003_original_434_658_pjpeg__79166ace6ef5358cb51b60982867b409) avec un arc sculpté sur bois. Savez-vous de quand date la sculpture et d'où elle provient? Votre site m'impressionne par son travail bibliographique délirant!!! Mon site à moi est en construction, d'autant que le musée est désormais ailleurs (je l'ai légué à une communauté de communes).
Merci par avance si vous avez la gentillesse de me répondre,
Dominique Merlin
