The Adoption of the Bow and Arrow in Eastern North America: A View from Central Arkansas (1999)

score:-1
Citation DOCUMENT Michael S Nassaney. Kendra Pyle.

[tDAR id: 423326] J. Whittaker: Regional survey of small point (= arrow) replacement of large points indicates likely earlier than previously thought - perhaps as early as 3000 BC in central plains with unifacial arrow points. Then some areas gradual transition with decrease in size of dart points, and transitional forms. In AR, abrupt introduction of arrow shown by bimodality of metric traits and different form of large and small points, and by different manufacture techniques, but long period of overlap,...

Citation DOCUMENT George I Quimby jr.

[tDAR id: 423396] J. Whittaker: [Exhibit guide, general info, not too useful], “The spear-thrower is like a rigid sling...it acts as an extension of the arm and therefore enables the hunter to throw the spear with greater momentum and force. Modern experiments have shown that the spr and sprthr lack the accuracy of the bow and arrow but possessed greater penetrating power...advantage in hunting tough-hided sea mammals. Other advantages...are its lack of recoil and fact that it does not require use of both hands.”...

Another Look at the Bannerstone (1984)

score:-1
Citation DOCUMENT Robert N Schmidt.

[tDAR id: 423397] J. Whittaker: Early crude forms not likely ceremonial objects (Knoblock). Webb atlatl theory flawed because "no drilled stones actually found on an identifiable spearthrower assembly," some antler hooks "quite fragile...do not seem suited for atlatl service." Battering and breakage of hole ends not from atlatl use. New hypothesis: sliding hammerstone for flintknapping. Indirect percussion easiest to learn, better yet if hammer and punch linked - hammer slides down shaft to strike shoulder of...

Archaeological, experimental and mathematical evidence supporting the use of the atlatl as a primary big game procurement weapon of prehistoric Americas (2000)

score:-1
Citation DOCUMENT William R Perkins. David Wescott.

[tDAR id: 419552] J. Whittaker: “Atlatl is not a spear thrower, it is a dart launcher.” – requires flex of dart to spring off hook. [Unexplained concept of oscillations invoked too.] Flexing force proportional to length of dart, shorter requires less, thus needs smaller point. Most efficient is L Dart = L Atlatl x Pi, best at middle ranges, so shorter for closer, longer atlatl for longer distance. Archaeological evidence of multiple lengths from rock art [not reliable]. Flexible atlatl adds efficiency, but hard...

Citation DOCUMENT Jeffrey Quilter. Edited by: Steve Bourget. Kimberly L Jones.

[tDAR id: 423395] J. Whittaker: Nothing to suggest coordinated formations, or attacks on fortification, most agree essence of M war was one-on-one combat for captures. Larco (2001) major source of info; in his museum distinguishes darts from lances (over 2 m long), no dart specimens. Darts always shown as compound weapons with long pt and thicker shaft. Lances or long spears rarely shown in M art. Copper spikes 25-50 cm long Larco thinks lance pts, but could be dart pts, would need counter weight on shaft to...

score:-1
Citation DOCUMENT Ray Strischek. David Wescott.
