Throw Back Thursday - The Atlatl

Fred Bear is quoted as saying “The history of the bow and arrow is the history of mankind” – yet there are several tools that predate the bow and arrow. The spear, the dart, and the atlatl. What is an atlatl? I submit - the starting point of the “history of mankind!” The design of the bow is to multiply the force exerted on a projectile. The atlatl uses a “simple machine," the lever, thereby multiplying the force exerted on a projectile. Enjoy this short video demonstrating an atlatl. Note it's design.
