The Mongol Bow

Find out more about the Mongol warrior’s most important weapon—the recurved bow. The Mongol army was often outnumbered two to one on the battlefield, but their unusual bows leveled the playing field, firing arrows 100 yards farther than the longbows or crossbows of their enemies.

Take a moment to learn more about how recurved bows are made, a process that took a warrior up to a year to complete.
