History of archery
Archery is the oldest olympic sport
When the bow was first invented it was a weapon and way of life not a part of a sport
The bow is not the oldest weapon but is the first invention by man in weaponry.
Archery had its origins around 50,000 years ago.
Nobody really knows when the first bows were drawn but the best guess is 50,000 years ago.
Bows in archery
Recurve bow: A bow where the tips curve away from the bow when drawn back.
Compound bow: A modern bow that uses a levering system of cables and pulleys, to bend the limbs. The limbs are much stiffer than other bows.
Barebow: A bow that does not have a mechanical sight or arrow rest.
More bow types
Longbow: A bow that is almost as tall as the shooter/ archer and has narrow limbs.
Crossbow: A bow with a horizontal limb, mounted on a rest that shoots projectiles, called bolts or quarrels.
Forms of archery
Arrows in archery
Steps to accurate shooting
Carbon:Light arrows which are less stiff than other arrows and are dangerous because they break into shards and splinters which could damage the bow.
Aluminum: Stiff and easy to cut to the right size. Also slightly heavier than carbon arrows.
Wood: arrows Less durable than others and are the arrows that were used with the first archery bows
