The atlatl revolutionized hunting for prehistoric people, and enabled them to take down large prey from long distances. Evidence suggests that the atlatl was used throughout the world for over 25,000 years, but the invention of the bow and arrow ended the atlatl’s reign as a premier hunting weapon.

Do you have what it takes to bring down a mammoth with an atlatl?  Join BLM Elko District Archaeologist Dayna Reale as she presents an overview of the history of the atlatl, followed by an interactive live demonstration.
