An Archer’s Notes (1989)

Citation DOCUMENT Ron King.

J. Whittaker: Influence of Pope + Ishi on archery. Point weights - archeols use 2g as dart/arrow distinction point, but Ishi and other ethnog bows around 45 lb draw, capable of “shooting through” deer, and modern hunting bows at 45lb also adequate, using points 110-150 grains = 7.1-9.7 grams, so need different explanations of bimodal point weight distrib. Bow more versatile, less movement, more positions possible, more shots, less exposure than atlatl. Points don’t kill by impact shock but...

The arrow (1895)

Good quotes on above, personal and individual nature of anthro, philosophy of study and need for replication. His discovery of arrowmaking. Arrows described (SW example).

Arrowheads and Projectile Points with a Classification Guide for Lithic Artifacts (1974)

Citation DOCUMENT G E van Buren.

J. Whittaker: [Most of the book is devoted to an eccentric and not very useful splitter typology scheme based on 35 attributes, with point names unused by anyone else and quite unnecessary.] Discusses design influences on points, including bows: N. Am. relatively weak, would use light arrows, thus average arrowhead should be 4 gm, although up to 17 gm possible. Various possible point hafting techniques. Atlatls: darts depicted on pre-hispanic art (Nuttall) suggest lengths 26-50 inches [Too...

The Atlatl Assessed: A Review of Recent Anthropological Approaches to Prehistoric North American Weaponry (1985)

Citation DOCUMENT Bruce D Dickson.

J. Whittaker: [Thorough review, good references, some mistakes.] Seems to accept theory of lengthened contact with spear rather than lever or spring. Most experiments show weights are no help. Atlatl survived for advantages in aquatic hunting and warfare.


Aztec Militarism and Blood Sacrifice: The Archaeology and Ideology of Ritual Violence (2007)

Citation DOCUMENT Ruben G Mendoza.

J. Whittaker: Revisionist efforts attempt to refute accounts of Aztec sacrifice as “racist, colonialist” etc. But our understanding of large-scale sacrifice not based only on Spanish accounts, also arch evidence of ritual violence - experiments in heart excision, serological study of deposits, forensic analysis of skeletal remains, including numerous sites with evidence of peri-mortem mutilation and cannibalism, 170 crania from tsompantli skull rack at Tlatelolco associated with stone tools used...


Aztec Warfare: Imperial Expansion and Political Control (1988)

Citation DOCUMENT Ross Hassig.

J. Whittaker: Compiled from various sources. Atlatl predates Aztecs, although some myth claims they invented it, or credits god Opochtli. Surviving examples often ornate, perhaps for ceremonial occasions, ca. 2 feet long with hook and groove. Grips with loops, holes, or pegs. [Poor photo shows elaborate atlatl with apparently simple grip; codex drawing shows peg grips on atlatls used against Spanish] Darts made of oak and fletched, a variety of points used. Shown in art carried in hand, not...


Ballistic testing of historical weapons (1998)

Citation DOCUMENT Thom Richardson.

J. Whittaker: Reports velocity tests on variety of weapons including atlatl, sling, bow, crossbow, early guns. Atlatl velocity: average 15.82 m/sec (35.47 mph) max 17.9 m/sec. Compared to spear 12.5 m/sec, slings and bows in 30-40s m/sec, arquebus bullet ca 400 m/sec. [But no info at all given on the atlatl, or the thrower, and these velocities seem really low, not enough better than hand thrown spear, see Whittaker + Kamp - our velocities 20-25 m/sec. So did they really know what they were...
