The news in Spanish:http://www.publico.es/ciencias/438598/catalun...-neolitico

And Google-translated

Short, but interesting and with relevant images.


PS: The forum is named "Historical Arms Talk" but I think that there should be no problem with pre-historic weapons Laughing Out Loud

Excellent find, thanks for the link Iagoba.
Does that article state that these are the oldest bow remains, or that they're the oldest ones found in the area, the translation isn't clear?

Matt,

"Estas son las características del arco más antiguo del Neolítico descubierto hasta la fecha"

These are the characteristics of the most ancient bow of the Neolithic era discovered to this date."

My guess is they are claiming oldest ever of Neolithic at least.

Not much info though. Would like to know more about the site.

Yes, they make clear that older bows have been found in Paleolithic contexts, but this is the oldest Neolithic one. Remains of another two bows had been found in 2002 and 2005, but this one is complete.

Here there is more info:
