Sicilian Saracen Archers



Muslims of Sicily served as superb archers under the Normans and went to war with them.

The island of Sicily was at one point prior to the 11th century, under control of Muslims, who conquered it from the Eastern Romans (Byzantines). Eventually they were conquered by the Normans but many remained in Sicily, living and serving under their Christian rulers, which made the island kingdom a melting-pot of eastern and western cultures.
