Prehistoric Archery - Some Considerations
J. Whittaker: Mesolithic bows of two types: stick bow, bends in complete arc, breaks at grip; handle reinforced bow, bends in restricted arc, breaks at end of limbs. Both found archaeologically in Mesolithic. Tend to have archaeological finds of heavy bows from wet lowlands sites, light arrows from upland sites – they should not go together.
