Historical Details of the Bow and Arrow 

The bow and arrow marks the transition from the Stone Age spear as the primary hunting tool of prehistory to being an important military weapon in many ancient civilizations. It was during this time that humans discovered that they could accurately hit distant targets by shooting arrows into them. The oldest known bow found in Europe was discovered in 1991 on Lake Constance where it was first thought to be about 8,000 years old but has since been dated at 9,500 years old. It was made of yew wood and had been cut with stone tools rather than metal ones which may indicate that it was put together by Neanderthals not modern humans as previously assumed.
