I've forgotten exactly if it was the 18th or 19th century when the modern archery target was standardised. Any help?--User 144 03:55, 2 Feb 2006 (CST)
"1424 The English king James I, bans football and golf as they are perceived to be interferring with archery practise."
There's something wrong with this statement - the year, country and king's name don't agree.(neither for James I nor James II)Tiff
Looking at it you are right. I shall have to go back to find the original reference. It may simlpy have been the Scottish James I.--User 144 22:24, 8 October 2006 (EST)
