New: writer doing research,

Greetings all!  I'm a writer working on a historical or perhaps prehistorical would be a better term; novel set in the Aurignacian period in South Central France.  I'm interested in the history (how far back) we can realistically place slings and atlatls and batons. Toying with the idea that thong-throwing as described in Primitive Technology: A Book Of Earth Skills (1999) may have been a technology which preceded the sling and may have been current in the period.

Welcome from Pennsylvania!  Good luck with your research.  The question of when slings may have first come into use is definitely a hard one to answer.
