The traditional shape of the bow has been radically changed in the compound bow,a bow in which a series of cables and pulleys reduces the amount of force needed to pull the bowstring back.


It is written that Hyksos introduced compound bows to Egypt.

#1 If they found any such a weapon in Egypt, how would they determine of Hyksos or Egyptians had made it.

#2 If Hyksos ruled northern Egypt, does that mean Egyptians remained there as in the example of when the Nazis ruled Poland or the British ruled India or did the Hyksos drive all Egyptians out of northern Egypt?

#3 If the Hyksos did drive all Egyptians out of the north, wouldn't the Egyptians have left some of their own belongings there?

#4 With out any text of the maker identifying it as being made by the Hyksos, how would they determine who made it?

#5 Give examples of compound bows 'archeologist' claim to have been produced in Egypt by the Hyksos?
