Re: Society of Primitive Technology

Oh thanks, Piney. I'd like to read about the banner stones.

My younger bro has made some arrowheads. A long time ago.
You could tell they were not the orig. tho. smile

Re: Society of Primitive Technology

I think MaryEllen is a member but I'm not sure. I know Jack Cresson is because he's the one who turned me on to them. smile
It took me years to perfect my knapping skills and I still can't "read the rocks" the way our ancestors did. I actually haven't met anyone that could. Many knappers I know still pick up pieces of discarded "tested cobble", smack it up and say to themselves "How did they know it would do that?".
  As for bannerstones. They do act like "silencers" in the deep brush. Plains hunters didn't need that feature. forest dwellers do. I know this from hunting blacktails in the Sandhills and whitetails in the cedar swamps with my bow. In the deep bush everything echos and I put silencers on my bowstring. Out in the open with that prairie wind ( you always make sure it's blowing towards you and not the deer) They can't hear it.
