What type of bow and arrow did the English make famous?

  • The crossbow
  • The recurve bow
  • The compound bow
  • The longbow correct

    It's argued the English first used the longbow to devastating effect at the Battle of Falkirk in 1298 against William Wallace's Scottish army. The English also used the bow effectively (no pun intended) in the Hundred Years War against the French. Source: historylearningsite.co.uk
