Europian Archery


The energy-storing reflex recurve bow was introduced to Europe by
Árpád and his vast army of skilled Magyar warriors during the VI-VIII
centuries. Apparently, Venice was built on water so that the Venitians
could keep their stolen treasure from the Magyars. However, most of
the Magyar treasure was reclaimed and the ancient homeland liberated
by the skilled Magyar warriors thanks partly to the advanced recurve
bow. It took a thousand years for the west to break the spirits of the
Magyar warriors and invent military techniques superior to the ancient
horseback warfare.

Ironically, Europe and the Magyar kingdom was almost destroyed by the
Mongol army led by Genghis Khan in the thirteenth century due to the
fact that the Magyar King, Béla, employed mainly German soldiers at
that time.
