Why were bow and arrows so popular?
Bows and arrows became so popular, because the previous method of shooting arrows was the crossbow. The crossbow was heavy and could only shoot a few arrows a minute. The much lighter bow and arrow could shoot many arrows in a minute. It was a vast improvement in shooting arrows. Bows cost a lot less than crossbows, and could be made from nearby trees. The crossbow needed a lot of work to be constructed.

Asked in Archery
Which is better a Crossbow or Compound Bow?
The question does not specify what is meant by "Better" Since the two bows are vastly different, you really need to clarify what you mean. If you mean in power, the crossbow wins every time, Medieval war crossbows were so powerful that they had to be "Spanned" (drawn) by a mechanical device, being beyond the strength of a man to draw back. Of course that meant that a longbowman could shoot about a dozen arrows while the crossbowman was reloading. Shooting a crossbow is also much easier, anyone can pick up a crossbow and shoot pretty accurately, not so with the compound, recurve, or longbow, which require a lot of skill and practice to use accurately.
