A bow is a composite projectile weapon that shoots arrows, often made of wood, bamboo or other flexible material. It was preceded by weapons such as the sling and the spear-thrower. A bow is usually a curved piece of wood with a bowstring attached at each end. A person who wields a bow is called an archer.
