Well, darts is listed as an AD&D weapon, so it's mideval, so I assume
throwing them at a target as as old as archery..


Pray Good Gentle; how do you make such an association? AD&D has very
little to do with reality. Just because somthing is listed there doesn't
make it medieval. (in truth, i don't doubt darts ARE medieval; what I am
calling into question is your research methods.) The manuals used in 
Advanced Dungeons and Dragons have no value as research materials.
Please, talk with your local MoA?S about how to asses research materials
as to their worth. If that gentle can't help you, get back in touch with
