Prize for reading this far: I just got Volumes 2-4 of the Traditional Bowyer’s Bible in the mail. I skipped to the chapter discussing the oldest extant bows. The oldest extant bows are the Stellmoor Bows found in Northern Germany dated to approximately 10,000 years ago. The fragments were unfortunately destroyed in WWII and thusly the pieces could not be carbon dated. The oldest existing extant bows are the Homegaard bows from Denmark, dated to as old as approximately 8,000 years ago. The oldest are elm and from the island of Zealand. Here’s a fun website that discusses the bow (use google translate, they mean bow when they say arc). http://www.archerie-primitive.com/articles/arcs-holmegaard.htm
