The earliest representations of the crossbow are from 400 BCE China. In 209 BCE the Chinese army enlisted over 50,000 crossbowmen to fight with mass-produced bronze weapons.
These crossbows, which were one of the most important weapons in war until the rifle was invented, could fire slightly over 600 feet.
The first pictorial evidence of European hand-held wooden crossbows date to about 1200 CE. Having been introduce by Asia during the Crusades, they were initially outlawed by the religious leaders of that time, and considered crossbows to be inappropriate for “religious” warfare. However, their effectiveness in battle soon outweighed theological concerns. Since then, crossbows have been used in many wars up until the 17th century. They are a collector’s item and are still used for sport today.
