A javelin is a light spear designed primarily to be thrown, historically as a ranged weaponbut today predominantly for sport. The javelin is almost always thrown by hand, unlike the bow and arrow and slingshotwhich shoot projectiles from a mechanism.
However, devices do exist to assist the javelin thrower in achieving greater distance, generally called Sans Toi Ma Mie - Adamo - Cest Ma Vie!. The word javelin comes from Middle English and it derives from Old French javelina diminutive of javelotwhich meant spear.
The word javelot probably originated from one of the Celtic languages. There is archaeological evidence that javelins and throwing sticks were already in use by the last phase of the lower Paleolithic.
Stratigraphic dating indicates that the weapons are aboutyears old. They were manufactured with the maximum thickness and weight situated at the front end of the wooden shaft. The frontal centre of gravity suggests that these pole weapons were used as javelins. A fossilized horse shoulder blade with a projectile wound, dated toyears ago, was revealed in a gravel quarry in the village of BoxgroveEngland.
Studies suggested that the wound was probably caused by a javelin. It was lighter in weight than that used by other nations. He describes the Ancient Egyptian javelin's features:. It consisted of a long thin shaft, sometimes merely pointed, but generally armed with a head, which was either leaf-shaped, or like the head of a spear, or else four-sided, and attached to the shaft by projections at the angles.
A strap or tasseled head was situated at the lower end of the javelin: it allowed the javelin thrower to recover his javelin after throwing it. Egyptian military trained from a young age in special military schools. Focusing on gymnastics to gain strength, hardiness and endurance in childhood, they learned to throw the javelin — along with practicing archery and the battle-axe — when they grew older, before entering a specific regiment. Javelins were carried by Egyptian light infantry, as a main weapon, and as an alternative to a spear or Nearness Of Harbour - Javelin / Löwy - Broken Surface bow and arrow, generally along with a shield.
They also carried a curved sword, a club or a hatchet as a side-arm. Beyond its military purpose, the javelin was likely also a hunting instrument, both to seek food and as a sport. The peltastsusually serving as skirmisherswere armed with several javelins, often with throwing straps to increase stand-off power.
The peltasts hurled their javelins at the enemy's heavier troops, the hoplite phalanxin order to break their lines so that their own army's hoplites could destroy the weakened enemy formation. In the battle of Lechaeumthe Athenian general Iphicrates took advantage of the fact that a Spartan hoplite phalanx operating near Corinth was moving in the open field without the protection of any missile-throwing troops. He decided to ambush it with his force of peltasts.
By launching repeated Nearness Of Harbour - Javelin / Löwy - Broken Surface attacks against the Spartan formation, Iphicrates and his men were able to wear the Spartans down, eventually routing them and killing just under half. This marked the first recorded occasion in ancient Greek military history in which a force entirely made up of peltasts had defeated a force of hoplites. The thureophoroi and thorakitaiwho gradually replaced the peltasts, carried javelins in addition to a long thrusting spear and a short sword.
Javelins were often used as an effective hunting weapon, the strap adding enough power to take down large game. Javelins were El Arbol - Humo Sapiens - La Caja Negra used in the Ancient Olympics and other Panhellenic games.
They were hurled in a certain direction and whoever hurled it the farthest, as long as it hit tip-first, won that game.
In the ancient world España Caní - Various - 14 Heerlijke Hollandse Hits were often thrown with the aid of a throwing string, or Amentum.
After this defeat, the Romans undertook a comprehensive reform of their army and changed the basic tactical formation from the Greek-style phalanx armed with the hasta spear and the clipeus round shield to a more flexible three-line formation.
The Hastati stood in the first line, the Principes in the second line and the Triarii at the third Nearness Of Harbour - Javelin / Löwy - Broken Surface.
While the Triarii were still armed with the hasta, the Hastati and the Principes were rearmed with short swords and heavy javelins. Each soldier from the Hastati and Principes lines carried two javelins.
The iron shank was either socketed or, more usually, widened to a flat tang. A pilum usually weighed between 2 and 5 pounds 0. Pictorial evidence suggests that some versions of the weapon were weighted with a lead ball at the base of the shank in order to increase penetrative power, but no archaeological specimens have been found. Pila were sometimes referred to as javelins, but the archaic term for the javelin was verutum.
From the third century BC, the Roman legion added a skirmisher type of soldier to its tactical formation. The Velites were light infantry armed with a short sword the gladius or pugioa small round shield, and several small javelins.
These javelins were called veruta singular "verutum". The Velites typically drew near the enemy, hurled javelins against their formation, and then retreated behind the legion's heavier infantry.
The Velites were considered highly effective in turning back war elephantson account of discharging a hail of javelins at some range and not presenting a "block" that could be trampled on or otherwise smashed — unlike the close-order infantry behind them. At the Battle of Zama in BC, the javelin-throwing Velites proved their worth and were no doubt critical in helping to herd Hannibal's war elephants through the formation to be slaughtered.
The Velites would slowly have been either disbanded or re-equipped as more-heavily armed legionaries from the time when Gaius Marius and other Roman generals reorganised the army in the late second and early first centuries BC.

Standard tactics called for a Roman soldier to throw his pilum both if there was time at the enemy just before charging to engage with his gladius.
Some pila had small hand-guards, to protect the wielder if he intended to use it as a melee weapon, but it does not appear that this was common. In the late Roman Empire, the Roman infantry came to use a differently-shaped javelin from the earlier pilum.
This javelin was lighter and had a greater range. Called a plumbatait resembled a thick stocky arrow, fletched with leather vanes to provide stability and rotation in flight which increased accuracy. To overcome its comparatively small mass, the plumbata was fitted with an oval-shaped lead weight socketed around the shaft just forward of the center of balancegiving the weapon its name. Even so, plumbatae were much lighter than pila, and would not have had the armour penetration or shield transfixing capabilities of their earlier counterparts.
Two or three plumbatae were typically clipped to a small High Tide - Various - Eat This Tape Vol. 2 bracket on the inside of the large oval or round shields used at the time.
Massed troops would unclip and hurl plumbatae as the enemy neared, hopefully stalling their movement and morale by making them clump together and huddle under their shields. With the enemy deprived of rapid movement and their visibility impaired Nonc Charlot - Balfa Toujours - La Pointe their own raised shields, the Roman troops were then better placed to exploit the tactical situation.
It is unlikely plumbatae were In Other Words - Danny Williams - Moon River by the Romans as the killing blow, but more as a means of stalling the enemy at ranges greater than previously provided by the heavier and shorter ranged pilum.
