ATLATL HANDLE, BANNER-
These three artifacts were found several years ago by
William Miller. Together they make up a complete assembly
for an atlatl, except for the wooden shaft that would have
connected them together. The handle is made of antler
and measures 3 1/2 inches (8.9 cm) long. The hole or cavity
in this handle that once held the wooden shaft measures
1 5/16 inches (4.1 cm) wide. The banner-stone is a simple
2 18 inches (5.3 cm) long and 1 7/16 inches (4.7 cm) wide.
The narrowest part of the drilled hole measures approximately
7/16 of an inch (11mm) wide and 11/16 of an inch (1.7cm) wide
at the opening. The hook is made of antler and it measures
2 inches (5.1 cm) long.
