Experience the power of the ATLATL, an ancient spear-throwing tool that predates the bow and arrow. Master crafters will demonstrate flint-knapping, the process of producing stone tools such as arrowheads, knives, and spear points. You will be able to see and experience these ancient technologies and tools in action with ongoing atlatl throwing contests all day! Bring your own atlatl, or borrow one, and join in the fun!
This free event is open to the public and does not require registration. Recommended for adults and children age 8 and above.
