Archery

Archery, art, practice, or skill of using a bow and arrow for hunting, warfare, or as a sport. Modern bows are constructed of wood, fiberglass, or graphite or carbon composites, with a taut cord or string connecting the bent ends of the bow. Arrows are usually made of either aluminum or carbon graphite, pointed at one end and with flight-stabilizing feathers at the other end. A notch in this butt end is fitted to the bowstring. As the string is pulled back, the bow bends for maximum tension, propelling the arrow when the string is released.

The earliest people known to have used the bow and arrow were the ancient internal linkEgyptians, who adopted the weapon at least 5000 years ago. The Romans owed much of their military superiority to armies of skilled archers. Medieval ballads celebrate the skills of English archers in hunting, fighting, and sport. The introduction of gunpowder gradually made the bow and arrow obsolete. Nevertheless, peoples of East Asia employed warfare archers as recently as the 19th century, and the use of the bow and arrow in hunting and intertribal fighting continues in central Africa and South America.

Archery has long been popular as an amateur sport, particularly in England. The oldest continuously held archery tournament, the Ancient Scorton Arrow, was internal linkfounded in Yorkshire in 1673. The Grand National Archery Society, the official organization of British archery, was established in 1844. The National Archery Association of the United States was founded in 1879 and held its first annual archery tournament in Chicago that year.

Archery competition is divided into various categories, such as target, field, and flight shooting. The main events of a target-shooting tournament are called rounds, with a specified range and number of arrows. The target is circular and has a series of concentric rings around a solid center, or bull's-eye. The colors of the rings from the center outward are gold, red, blue, black, and white. They are assigned point values for arrows shot into them.
