Who invented Crossbows?

The Crossbow dates back to 4 B.C and was invented by China, although it is said Greece invented one around the same time. The Crossbow was used in many medieval battles and was considered one of the most deadly weapons mainly because it could penetrate a soldier’s armour. It was even once banned by a Pope! By trying out our Crossbow in the forest in our fun and relaxed environment, you will be having quite a different experience from those who first used it.

Today Crossbow’s don’t attract quite so much drama and are mostly used for target practice and hunting.
