Two interesting articles related to slings
May 18th, 2010 at 6:25am
 
Hi,

I haven't seen these two studies mentioned anywhere on this site, but I may be mistaking as there is a huge volume of info posted and I didn't managed to go trough all of it yet.

Nevertheless here you have the info:

S. J. Greep, Lead Sling-Shot from Windridge farm, St Albans and the Use of the Sling by the Roman Army in Britain, in Britannia, vol. 18, 1987, pp. 183-200. The article can be also found on Jstor (for those of you who have acces) http://www.jstor.org/stable/526445

R. F. Heizer and I. W. Johnson, A Prehistoric Sling from Loveloch Cave, Nevada, in American Antiquity, vol. 18, no. 2 (Oct 1952), pp. 139-147. Jstor link http://www.jstor.org/stable/276537

I hope you will find them interesting and useful and that I haven't reposted information that was already available.

Cheers!

Yep. Just seen them both in the textual resources area.  Smiley
Sorry but I started looking trough the forum discussions first and got lost in between so many posts.

It's pretty rare to dig up a reference that isn't here already. But JSTOR has made them  much more easily available on-line than they used to be, at least to those of us lucky enough to have JSTOR access.

Those two references are classics.

Yeah. These two references are indeed classic. I was surprised not to find them, only to realize that it was me not looking where I should. I will take time to go also trough all of the forum discussions, before starting to make new contributions to these website. But it looks to me there aren't to many topics that haven't been covered.  Smiley Quite happy to see so many good posts.

Don't worry, akinakes, I think it is good to mention "older" articles once in a while. Very few people can read all posts on this forum.
