Put Crow Canyon On Your Calendar: Atlatls and Bows, and Arrows and Darts! Oh, My!

If you're a lithicist this is bound to get the blood flowing. Have a look at this item over at prweb.com.
From Atlatls to Bows: Crow Canyon Archaeological Center Announces New Archaeology Research SeminarWeek of Replication and Experimentation Focuses on Ancient Projectile Technology
The continent-wide technological transformation from spear-thrower to bow, and from dart to arrow, will be replicated, re-enacted, and a few more 'r' words at the Center's campus near Mesa Verde.

For details of the week-long experience, check out their brochure
From Atlatls to Bows: Prehistoric Projectile Technology, August 24–30, 2014
For 30 years now, the non-profit Center has made good on their mission 
. . . to advance knowledge of the human experience through archaeological research, education programs, and collaboration with American Indians.
If you're unfamiliar with the Center, you can find out more at their web site here. And if you're concerned about accommodation, I don't think you need to worry. Thanks to early funding and an ongoing development program, I think you'll find the campus very comfortable. I'm wishing I could go! But then, IANALA!
