Atlatls, Ancient Hunting Tools of the Nashoba Valley

Hold onto your atlatls because today we’re venturing back to see what the Nashoba Valley was like 13,000 years ago! The two-mile-high ice sheets from the last ice age have just receded, and the land is a wild tundra filled with big game like moose, caribou, and… WOOLLY MAMMOTHS! If you’ve had a chance to view yesterday’s post about the ancient hunting tool, the atlatl, great! If you haven’t yet, take a quick peek at Wednesday’s photo gallery and you’ll be all up to speed and ready to get acquainted with our mammoth herd in this post! If you’re able to check out the Society’s Facebook page, you can find videos of today’s atlatl adventures!
