Chachapoya Slingers

"Into the Unknown with Josh Bernstein
The Cloud Warriors
TV-G

For seven centuries the Chachapoya ruled the mountains of northern Peru from their hilltop fortress of Kuelap. Then in the 1500's their civilization vanished. Josh Bernstein investigates the mysterious disappearance of the fearsome Cloud Warriors."

That's from the discovery channels schedule.It aired tonight,and showed the local throwing at various skulls and a few watermelons.Bernstein himself got a hold of the sling and with a helicopter cast,he nailed a smallish skull at about 15 yards!They were saying that the sling was a good weapon because it is potentially lethal.The interpreter insisted that it was not how fast you spun it above your head,but the final spin that gave you your acceleration and accuracy.

They discussed the Chachapoyas weaponry about 40 minutes in.I was debating hitting the sack at 10:30,and right when I was shutting down they broke into the sling bit.It was actually fairly cool.They did a rerun at 2:00 A.M. Eastern,but I think that was it.
