The cross bow of the middle ages was very effective. The
cross bow was fairly complex. It has five parts. The lever, the string,
The Main Board, And the bow back. It has been used for hundreds of years
and is very effective. It had the same effect as the long bow but a lot
more power. The cross bow was about 1/3 the size of a traditional
long bow. The cross bow was used by pulling the string back and locking it
in place. Then the person loaded the bolt “arrow” and then pulled the
lever and fired it.
