Hallo people!
I'm preparing the anthropological section, and it will look like this: there will be our stuff shown on a table, a big card with the logo and colors of the forum, and smaller cards for each objects.
These cards will contain info on both the object and the person who sent it to me: so these people should - if they want - send me some info about them, such as work, birthplace, interests.... any info you would like to give about you!
I'd also like to add your pictures on the main card: this's a vague project, but I think it should be a nice way to thank you for your support.
If it's ok with you, send me some pictures of you (the more detailed on your person, the better) and we'll work that card out  Smiley

If I'll not have responses in some days, I'll assume you have not read this topic, and will send PMs to these guys; sorry if I'm a bit importunate but I really would like to promote you and our site in the proper way  Smiley
Greetings,
Mauro.

I think that's a pretty good idea. I'm game for it. In fact, since I'm already sending you my sling for SITH, it should be even better.

Eh people, it's official:

Since Ulrica alone sent me her pics, I don't have enough to show your faces to the public  Smiley
But I'm working on the cards and it will be a great exposition!
Greetings,
Mauro.

I was just thinking today of all the members that rarely post now, that used to be regulars... and how much the forum could use some new recruits. Sounds like a fantastic idea.  Smiley


How about me?
Anyone remember me? =p

Anyway, spread the knowledge and skills!

So!
Tomorrow morning I'll go to that Museum and prepare the stand. Our forum will be advertised in an almost embarrassing manner  Cheesy
And so will be these members who sent me anthropological stuff, prepare for pics!

Mauro.

Hallo people!
Yesterday it has been a great day for our community!
We arrived at the Fossil Museum in the morning, met Doc. Isabella Piermarini and started building up our stand.
Since images are more effective than my words, look here:

...
Our stand!

...
Left: hypotetical recontruction of a Picenian panoplia during the VIIth Century b.C.; right: hypotetical Picenian winter clothes, made by Mom.

...
Sling bullets!

...
And some primitive tools (note blood signs on the small flint blade!).

...
Archaeological fields built to approach children to archaeology - by Doc. Isabella Piermarini!

And now... a focus on the space I reserved to our Community!!

...
A view of the stuff you gave me.

...
Bill Skinner's head pot and flint blade (which has been very useful for explanations on knapping techniques).

...
Rockman's sling!

...
Ulrica's sling!!!

...
Bigkahuna's Tibetan sling and glass bead!

...
Our Forum Rulez!!!!!!

...
Some people visiting the Museum...

...
And from the left: Doc. Fabio Fazzini, Doc. Isabella Piermarini, me and a hippo's head dating about 700'000 years ago.

There haven't been so many visitors, let's say 50 people, and I had not a true chance to describe slings or slinging. The Event focused more on flint knapping and approaching kids to archaeology.
But once I and Doc. Fazzini explained people about knapping, we had some spare time and I showed some persons how a sling works.

More interesting, the town's mayor visited us and we explained him what the Event was about: hear ye hear ye, he engaged us for Montelago Celtic Nights, a Celtic event that will take place in August. We'll have our stand and will have no orders, so I'll focus on slinging!
It's a huge fest with thousand of visitors, I'm so happy about that!
And thank you ALL for making this possible!
I hope you like these pictures; I have others and if you want them just ask me; of course you can save any picture you want.
Thanks again,
Mauro.


And, on a side... touching a skull dating 900'000 years ago is somehow impressive  Grin
You feel respect for these ancient remains:
...

Seriously, thank you guys, We Are Number One!!
Mauro.
