Many bow designs have been used in different cultures and time periods. The most common design was the longbow, which was used in Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia. A longbow is a type of bow that is tall (roughly equal to the height of a person who uses it), is not significantly recurved and has relatively narrow limbs, that are circular or D-shaped in cross section. It will normally allow its user a fairly long draw, at least to the jaw.
the arrow was a propelled and projecting weapon for piercing the targeted body. It consisted of a straight shaft with a sharp arrowhead on one end, and feathers, that were attached to the rear end, to stabilizing the arrow’s flight. In prehistorical times, arrowheads were first made of bone, flint, quarz, and, of course, obsidian, which was the most widely used material. The wooden shaft was split at one end; then the arrowhead was firmly tied in the split shaft with sinews.
