Maybe so, but what I was looking for was why they were such efective warriors... because they could shoot from horseback and swich sides, due to the smaller recurve bow they used.
So you're up!

I wouldn't think so... yew wood in England has been around a long time and was probably laminated into their long bows, but that's just a guess.
And what are you doing at wiki anyway? This is supposed to be a trivia game of either you know it or you're a darn good guesser, lol.

I wiki'd after I answered, because I was doubting my answer. And there is a difference between composite and laminate. Isn't there? Composite, different materials use?
