S1: Folsom Hunters & the Atlatl

  • Rating: NR
Adrien Hannus talks about Folsom hunters and the atlatl, a device which helps propel a spear further, faster, and more fatally than a human arm can alone. This device was created and used by prehistoric people more than 10,000 years ago, and it’s an example of evolving technology from ancient times.
