Political: Advancements in military technology give a temporary advantage to the inventors. The compound bow allowed nomadic people to intimidate and/or attack settled areas, which allowed for greater political power as well as ongoing conflict between the two groups.

Interaction between humans and the environment

As contacts, both peaceful and hostile, between nomadic and settled peoples, technology was transferred from one group to another. The compound bow was adopted by the settled peoples to defend their lands and cities against the nomadic raiders. This leveled the playing field somewhat and allowed for settled civilization to stabilize and spread.
