Just got a new book.Iron Age Hillfort defences and the Tactics of Sling Warfare, by Peter Robinson. In the intro, he thanks the "expert slingers" of slinging.org. He especially thanks David Morningstar, and Curious Aardvark.
  Available from Archaeopress  Publications.

lol find the table of sling data. I think I'm slinger 2. It's the one with 5 or six lots of data down to the same slinger anyway.
Basically the results are pretty much just based on my data, nobody else could consistently hit the 50 metre targets.
Plus the second time I went down, I threw a LOT of missiles.

Didn't know he'd actually published it as a book, have to drop him a line - I'm owed a signed copy at the very least :-)

Cheeky sod's got his own picture on the front cover.
That should have been me, wellies and all.
lol

I already confessed that having a picture of self on the cover was a mistake a) because I get stick from archaeology friends for it and b) because it should be a proper slinger. I cursed when I realised what I'd done.

C_A is in fact Participant 1 (and 1A, 1B, 1C and 1D).
