Artifact-Bows

I chose the sinew backed bows, which were listed as Inupiaq, and Yupik or unknown. The age of the bows was also not listed but they were all from northern Alaska, Canada and Siberia. I was drawn to this display because I have been practicing archery since I was a child. I find it amazing that nearly every culture has bows and arrows, and that bow types across cultures are remarkably similar.
