Primitive Technology II: Ancestral Skills

  • Edited by David Wescott this is part 2 of a compilation from half of the materials available in issues 1-12 of The Bulletin of Primitive Technology. The Stone Age is the common denominator of mankind, and through experimental archeology―the relearning and replication of ancient skills―we take a step of discovery and understanding into this rich past. In this collection, drawn from the pages of the Bulletin of Primitive Technology, learn to create tools to fabricate more complex technologies; master the arts of the bow and arrow; build a shelter or fashion clothing from fibers or buckskin. Primitive Technology II: Ancestral Skills provides the guide to rediscovery of the skills and crafts that bind us all into this great human family.
