Native Kneeling with Bow and Arrow

Found in the south of Africa, the ranged weapon system known as the bow and arrow can be dated from around 72,000-60,000 years ago.The weapon spread north through Eurasia during the Late Stone Age and before the end of the last glacial period, use of the bow was found in every inhabited region except for Australasia (the region which comprises Australia, New Zealand, and some neighbouring islands), as the Aborigines seemed to prefer the spear. The device is deceptively simple in that it has only one moving part, but it takes years of training to master and a strong man to make the projectile deadly. It remained with most armies until the widespread use of gunpowder weapons in the 16th century. Still, a trained warrior could loose off 4 to 8 arrows in the time it took to reload and fire a single musket ball.
