Arrows, projectiles shot from a bow into a target. Now how are these important? From the beginning of human history we humans have had to survive. from hunting to protection this was not an easy task. As time progressed tools were made to make life easier. The bow and arrow was not the first projectile tool, the first was a slingshot, then a throwing board and dart. The bow and arrow was made to improve upon previous tools and make survival easier. Arrows can be found in history and also fiction such as the Green Arrow, Hawkeye, Robin Hood, and Legolas, just to name a few. Does the arrow share a meaning across fantasy, and history? Where was the oldest bow and arrow discovered? How old is it, and how was it made? How have these tools evolved through the years? I plan to answer all these questions and more. Covering the history, fantasy, associations, and possible future predictions of these tools, I will help you, the reader, to have a better understanding on this seemingly simple yet very complex topic.
