ANCIENT SKILLS

Some of the Ancient Skills worked on are:  

Stone mauls and axes, flint-knapped projectile points (arrow heads, spear points & knife blades) – make and haft them to their handles, fore-shafts, arrows or darts.    

Primitive bows and arrows - make and learn how to use them. 


In learning how our ancestors survived and thrived, we can appreciate the fantastic spirit they possessed.  We learn to use our hands, which many of us have forgotten. We come to know a simpler way of life and learn that simple does not always mean easy. We strive to share as many of the life skills of our ancestors as we can. We want to show people that this technology belongs to all of us worldwide.  

  

You are alive today because your ancient ancestors lived this life…         

Atlatls and darts/spears – learn to make and use these ingenious weapons that have been found throughout the world.    

Friction Fire – learn how to make and prepare your friction and percussive fire sets and make fire with them.    

Fibers – prepare, spin and twist plant and animal fibers into yarn, string/cordage and make functional items with the material.
