Even though I included information about the atlatl previously as part of another page on petroglyphs, I decided to make it available as a page of its own with a category titled, "References". The atlatl was an ancient tool used by the Anasazi (Puebloan) cultures, 1,500-800 years ago, before the invention of the bow and arrow. Atlatl is an Aztec Indian word for spear thrower. It was a shaft which was used as a lever to increase the power imparted to a spear or dart, allowing them to be thrown further and with greater speed and power. You can access it here … The Atlatl.
