Voyager Lecture: Sticks and Stones–An Exploration of Prehistoric Tools and Weapons

October 19th @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$15

Voyager Lecture: Sticks and Stones–An Exploration of Prehistoric Tools and Weapons.

6:30pm Social hour: Socializing before the lecture with like-minded friends is back! Light snacks and beverages are provided! 7:30pm Lecture.

Learn about early axes, Indigenous traditions of Central and South America, ancient graffiti, tales of fieldwork, archeology heroes, spears, sharp rocks, ancient blades, bows and arrows, ancient graffiti ….. and atlatls?

What is an Atlatl? You have likely never heard of an atlatl, but by the end of the presentation, you’ll be carving one out of old lumber and instructed on the physics of how far you can lob this ancient weaponry. Also, learn about the World Atlatl Association and what to do if you find artifacts on a hike.

Experimental archeologist and decades-long ancient tool enthusiast Angelo Robledo is as passionate as an “ologist” can get.

 

Angelo Robledo

Angelo Robledo has been fascinated with the technology of the past since he was a young child. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, he grew up exploring the great archaeological sites scattered around the American southwest, from Valley of Fire to Mesa Verde, which drove him to pursue a degree in archaeology at UNLV. Within archaeology, he quickly singled out one piece of ancient technology, the atlatl, as his specialty which earned him a seat on the board of directors for the World Atlatl Association at just 19 years old. Beyond atlatls, Angelo has also participated in archaeological excavations in remote corners of both the Arizona desert and the Belizean jungle. He now shares his passion for atlatls with others and has conducted hundreds of atlatl presentations and workshops at museums, universities, and K-12 schools across the country over the last five years along with being a featured guest on the award-winning science podcast ‘Ologies with Alie Ward.’
