Self-yew English longbow, 6 ft 6 in (2 m) long.

A longbow was a type of bow that was tall, roughly equal to the height of the person who uses it, and was developed on Old Earth in England and Wales.

It was never developed on Safehold, thus allowing weapons such as the pike and the Siddarmarkian pike phalanx to remain as potent weapons long after similar eras on Old Earth. (MTAT)
