What is Archery?

Archery is an activity where you shoot an arrow from a bow. This activity and the bow is one the most archaic activities and weapons of humankind know to be developed in the Upper Paleolithic. It was developed independently in different cultures and times and replaced the spear throwers as a projectile unit. Archery traditionally was used for hunting and warfare. Today, you will see archery as a sport as well, it is even in the Olympics too. At Sacred Heart, we focus on the historical aspects of archery and the traditional way of shooting with a bow. This means we use replicas of bow from different ages and culture and we use wooden arrows, just like our ancestors did. We don’t use middle shooter bows as it is more like a sportbow nor carbon arrows that are modern inventions.
