I received a copy of "The Ballistics of The Sling" by Thom Richardson from the Royal Armouries.  They were exceptionally helpful I must say.  I can provide limited copies to interested people for a small fee to cover duplication and postage costs. 

I would like to get hold of:

Burgess, EM 1958 An Ancient Egyptian Sling Reconstructed.
King, F H 1960 A Note on The Square Sinnet,

If anyone has these texts, please contact me (email address in members link at top of page).

Thanks,
Chris

The sling recovered in Egypt was made from flax.  "A widely cultivated plant, Linum usitatissimum, having pale blue flowers, seeds that yield linseed oil, and slender stems from which a textile fiber is obtained."

Chris,
What's a copy going to cost me?...Also ,while I'm thinking about it, what's the skinny on the t-shirts?
I had an idea for a slinger's patch and may still have connections so they can be made cheap...

Oh, thanks for the info!

Sorry for the too late post but I didn't have any time.

Hey, English, the slings that you make are like the one that was found?, if so, can you please post an image?

Sorry, I don't have these texts.
