Bow and Arrows

ELMO00000289_G.jpg Gourd RattleThumbnailsPrehistoric Corn Cobs

Cultural Period: Puebloan

Description: Sinew wrapped bow and arrows. The bow is strung with sinew, and reinforced with the same material, but a crack runs crosswise through the center of the arch. Both arrows have sinew-bound feather fletching and stone points and painted red nock ends. The three-feathered arrow is known to be a replica, and it is likely the other is as well.

Provenience: Unknown.

Collection: National Park Service, El Morro.
