I can't get your link to link, but I'm sure you are correct. Yew was not just used for longbows though. The oldest wooden artefact found in Britain is the 250,OOO year old yew spear point found at Clacton - that's Palaeolithic from the Hoxnian inter-glacial.

I believe that even older ones have been found in Germany
