      The SCA is centered on Europe during the period from the end of Roman
      rule to 1600. However, it also recognizes that the rest of the world
      did exist and the an "embassy" from anywhere during the time period
      could be present. Thus any style of bow used during this vague and
      generalized time period may be considered period. Since things like
      sights, arrow shelves built into the bow, stabilizers, and compound bows
      are 19th to 20th century inventions, they cannot be used in period
      division. The SCA generally recognizes that composite bows using horn,
      bone, etc. existed and will allow modern replacements to be used in
      place of these on the range.
      Basically, if you show up on the range with a bow without center cut
      arrow shelf and with proper
      arrows, you may shoot in the period division in the outlands. If you
      enter a bow in an A&S competition, be well prepared for many challenges
      on minutiae.
