Academy of Historical Arts Study Guide Series:
Scottish Broadsword and British Singlestick
by Keith Farrell

This book is an introduction to the history, use and context of the Scottish basket-hilted broadsword. As part of the Academy of Historical Arts Study Guide series, it is intended to serve as a study guide for practitioners of historical fencing who work with this weapon, or who would like to begin learning its style. Instructors will also find it helpful as it provides plenty of contextual information to use for illustrating lessons, and anecdotes to help students engage with the system.

Contained within is all the information required for self-study of two fascinating disciplines, Scottish broadsword and British singlestick, with salient points for study for people who do not have the luxury of regular access to a teacher. For practitioners who do receive regular tuition, this book will not replace input from your teacher, but will instead supplement it and offer a greater awareness and understanding of the context of the art that you study.

A fine historical introduction
The book can be broadly divided into three sections. The first and largest outlines the history and context for the subject weapons For the new reader the book is nothing short of a treasure. The middle section is a reprint of the 'Roworth' treatise - A very good choice for someone taking up the broadsword or single stick for the first time. Finally we come to the gem of the book. The thi
