These things definetely need restoring no doubt. But surely there must be recorded observations. Say the Pagans, used copper and tin to make bronze axes, very similar to those of the saxons and celts and the types found all around the euphrates even further north during the persian empire. We have recordings of astrology, medicines, religious beliefs all parts of society from back in pagan days. But no recordings of MA ? We must have had systems back then, i just find it hard to believe there are no texts. In Titacus's account of Germania during saxon times, he mentions their social structure and fighting methods, which hint at formalised systems, but no descriptive detail. These systems did exist all over europe, but no evidence ? its all a conspiracy i tell you. In terms of restoring MA from traditional sources like highland dirk dance, morris dancing, shin kicking, there just isn't enough money or time or resources put into preservation, people prefer the mysterious lure of oriental myths and legends.
