Archery Bows

Bow is a weapon used together with the arrows. Bows, and arrows, are traced to be the first weapons of war during the medieval periods. Also, there had been studies that the first existence of bows and arrows are discovered in some parts of Africa, where they use the said weapons for hunting animals in the forest. Historians estimated that bows and arrows were first invented as early as the 50,000 BC.Archery Bows

The person who makes the bow is called the bowyer; while the one who creates the arrows is called the fletcher.

A bow basically consists of a pair of elastic limbs, having a string connecting their two ends. The limbs’ first and foremost characteristic is its amazing elasticity, which is obviously very much significant since the limbs of the bow are repeatedly bended in a deep curve by the archer, or whoever uses it for that matter. However, the string that connects the tips of the limbs should also be strong enough in order to resist the force, as it is frequently stretched, and should also be moisture resistant as well, since moist can weaken its strength. Traces were found that the early strings are made out of animals' intestines, or plant fibers such as linen. Nowadays, strings are usually made out of synthetic polymer, as well as of steel cables.

With the modern technology, bows are still in existence, and in fact, certain innovations are made, which come up to different types, sizes and uses of bows.

The basic kinds of bows are the compound bows, recurve bows, and crossbows.
