A miniature antler bow from a Middle Bronze Age site at Isleham, (Cambridgeshire), England

  • Kasia Gdaniec (a1)

A little bow — at less than half a metre long too small to be a practical tool — comes from the later prehistoric Fenland of east England. Along with the wristguards, fine arrowheads and smoothing stones of the British Bronze Age, it tells of the special meaning of archery in later prehistory — whether in the animal chase or in human combat.
