ovoid sling stones
Dec 24th, 2006 at 10:01am
 
Just got done perusing the book Indian and Eskimo Artifact of north America, by Charles Miles
   Seems that in both North America and the South Pacific, the natives made special ammo for their slings. They were ovoid baked clay shot, very similar to the clay glandes of Europe. These are all pre Columbian finds.
  Just shows that's mans needs and solutions are universal.
