Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Bogen die voornamelijk bestaan uit een gebogen staaf die kruislings op een middenschacht is geplaatst door middel van een systeem van bindingen van touw of darm of door metalen banden. De pees wordt teruggetrokken, vastgehouden en losgelaten door een mechaniek als een windas of een draaibare moer. Ze waren zeker al in de 11de eeuw in gebruik en worden nog altijd gebruikt voor de jacht en recreatie.
