History

The bow and arrow, invented in prehistoric times, greatly improved the hunting skills of early man that allowed him to kill his targets from a distance. The bow was adapted for use in battle and was first used by Egyptian, Persian, and Assyrian armies as early as 5000 BC. The range gave by the bow allowed small forces of archers to rout armies of superior numbers of hand-to-hand weapons. Archers were often used to soften enemy resistance before they would send in their mounted or skirmish forces.
