Atlatl Competition

June 19 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Atlatl Competition, Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village: June 19

An atlatl (pronounced AT-lat-el) is a spear-thrower used by prehistoric hunters before high-tech arms like the bow and arrow were developed. Atlatls were carved from wood, bone or antlers and were used to increase a spear’s velocity and force to bring down big game like elk or deer. Kids can see the tool in action, learn the proper technique and try out the spear-thrower themselves at Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village on June 19. The day includes watching some of the world’s best competitors during an Atlatl Competition. The atlatl activities are free with general admission. Buy your timed tickets here or take your chances at the Visitor Center.
