Need help from french members
Oct 20th, 2022 at 10:20am
 
Bonjour,
je souhaite étudier la collection de balles de fronde du musée de Quimper avec une approche précise. A savoir, étudier une balle de fronde, non pas par son poids mais par sa taille.
Mais n'étant pas archéologue, je crains d'essuyer un refus. C'est pourquoi si parmi les membres de ce forum, un professionnel pouvait me contacter en message privé, je me ferai un plaisir d'argumenter mon projet.

Sorry for non-French speakers.

Lol, without looking at Google translate, I reckon you're looking for ancient sling missiles found in France it in local french museums, for a paper/article you're writing.

I'm now going to get it translated and see just how wrong I am Smiley

At school our French teacher was German, so I always blame her for my lousy french.
She didn't like me and I didn't like her - probably didn't help lol.

Well there are sling bullet studies and a museum involved, so I'm calling that a win Smiley
I mean I was almost close lol

Good luck with your quest Smiley

If you'd like to to contact the museum in my official capacity, let me know.

But if you just lurk around the museum and chat to the curators about slings, you might be surprised what they'll let you do.

Failing that, Tegs had experience of dealing with museums, he can probably give you some useful advice Smiley

Thank you to CA (late, sorry) and Teg for your help. I contact the museum early next year.
However, I ask the interested volunters to send me their measures in a private message. I'm convinced that the size of some slinballs corresponds of the measurements of the slinger.
Thanks  Smiley
