Archery is the sport, practice or skill of using a bow to propel arrows. Historically, archery has been used for hunting and combat.

In modern times, it is mainly a competitive sport and recreational activity.

The arrows were made of pine and consisted of a mainshaft and a 15–20 centimetres (5.9–7.9 inches) long fore shaft with a flint point.

There are no definite earlier bows; previous pointed shafts are known, but may have been launched by spear-throwers rather than bows.

The oldest bows known so far come from the Holmegård swamp in Denmark.

Bows eventually replaced the spear-thrower as the predominant means for launching shafted projectiles, on every continent except Australasia, though spear-throwers persisted alongside the bow in parts of the Americas, notably Mexico and among the Inuit.

Bows and arrows have been present in Egyptian culture since its predynastic origins.
