Was about to say great things about the man, but you found what made him really great listener and thus teacher.
I could sit and just listen to him.

"Seven tricks to piss off the French, #3 will shock you!"

I love the English longbow. If I remember correctly, skeletons of these archers would be easy to tell, since their right arms were larger than their left.

TIL that If I had died at 14 I might've been mistaken for an English archer.

The evidence is all in the shoulder and back muscles, not so much the arm. The former two would have been over developed.

I heard another telltale sign is links between the shoulder blades wouldn't properly fuse

level 2

This would hardly be exclusive to English Longbowmen. They would have been on the end of the scale due to the bow's draw-weight, but all archers would have muscles more developed on one side.
