In this event you will experience life as a stone age hunter in 10.000 B.C., at least a small glimpse of it. The heart of the experience is building your own Atlatl-set. The weapon of choice for big game hunting in the ancient past, the now forgotten spearthrower was used throughout the world in many ancient societies. After making your set you will be instructed how to throw effectively and then you  train for the simulated hunt. Cooking was a big part of living then and is still now. In order to cook we need to make fire first, not an easy task with ancient techniques.

We will slip in and out of the stone age experience. For example we will use metal handtools for atlatl making, working efficiently with stone tools requires an expertise you simply cannot acquire in one day. Nevertheless, after this day you will appreciate the skillset of your ancestors more and will have learned new skills.
