Archers



ARCHER, ARCHERS, ARCHERY. The main tactical offensive unit of ancient armies was the archer.

The laminated bows made of glued layers of animal hide and thin layers of wood pulled at upward of one hundred pounds, and the missiles thus powered could easily pierce all but the strongest armor.
