This image shows a Neolithic bow that was recently discovered at La Draga, the site of one of the earliest agriculture-based human communities, near Lake Bayoles in Catalonia, Spain. The bow, the first to be found intact at the site, has been dated to between 5400-5200 B.C. Archaeologists say the farming communities could have used the 3.5-foot (108 cm) bow for hunting small animals or as a symbol of prestige.
