Abstract

J. Whittaker: Using stone tools, replicates a NV atlatl with weight. See Hester 1974 (site NV WA 197).
Very detailed description and evaluation of manufacture, tools and materials. Some throwing experiments – average 50-60 yards, feels good accuracy attainable, despite few trials and inexperience. [Good paper.]
