A bow is a ranged weapon, used to shoot projectiles over a distance. They are used by most armies in the World of Narnia, along with Swords and Spears. Dwarves are renowned as expert bowmen.
Aside from battle, bows are also used for hunting.
A Crossbow is an advanced bow mounted on a wooden shoulder stock.
It shoots bolts rather than arrows.
In some adaptions, longbows are used.
They are like bows, but are larger, which allows them to have extra power when firing arrows.
Shortbows are a bow, which are more or less the same as the longbows, but they are a lot shorter.
This is ideal for a lot of Narnians, as it allows them to be used by beings such as Dwarves and Talking Beasts, since they obviously can't handle a longbow, which are too large for them.
In the film adaption of Prince Caspian, Telmarines also use ballistas to kill many Narnians from a distance.
They are like crossbows, only much much larger so that they can't be held by any man.
