One of the major weapons in the ancient times were the hand wielded weapons. Hand wielded weapons such as clubs, knives, swords (and other close-range thrusting and cutting weapons) were one of the most powerful, useful weapon back in the ancient times. Ancient people used these objects to protect themselves and hunt for food. This website fits into my collection because it is a type of weapon from pre-civilization, and my topic is weapons. This website is reliable since it is an encyclopedia.
Another major weapon back in the old times were weapons for close combat. These weapons such as spears and javelins were to be held for use in a close combat as well as to be thrown by hand. Just like the hand wielded weapons, spears and javelins were used (by ancient people) to protect themselves from harm, in hunt for food and for combat. This website fits into my collection because a close combat weapon is a type of weapon, and my topic is weapons. This website is reliable because it is an encyclopedia.
Missile weapons were also another major weapon in the olden times. Weapons such as slings, bows, and catapults were considered missile weapons. Unlike the hand wielded weapons, the missile weapons were more used for combat to defeat enemies than to hunt for food. This website fits into my collection because a missile weapon is a type of weapon, and my topic is ancient weapons. This website is reliable source because it is an encyclopedia.
The weapons that came later were used to hurl missilesーstones arrows and javelinsーover longer distances than a human could possibly do alone. The crossbow fired metal bolts at a really high speed that it was most likely to pierce through shields and protective armors but had a limited range and a low rate of fire. This website fits into my collection since the crossbow is another type of the weapons from the ancient times, which is under my theme of ancient weapons.
