Thunderbird Atlatl will be in Vermont this weekend. Thanks to all our friends who made the Maine Primitive Weekend a great experience a couple weeks ago.
There is still time to sign up for the workshop at Chimney Point on Friday. It is from noon to 5 p.m. It will take place at the Chimney Point Historic Site in Vergennes, Vt. We are excited to be back at Chimney Point again after two years away during construction of the new Lake Champlain Bridge.
For further information about the workshop and to sign up contact, the museum at 802-759-2412. This is the 17th year the workshop has been offered at Chimney Point! This is a Vermont Archaeology Month program.
On Saturday, September 22, the 17th Annual Northeastern Open Atlatl Championship will be held at the museum.
Participate in or watch this annual championship. The sport of atlatl throwing is based on the ancient hunting technique of using the atlatl or spear thrower. Demonstrations and workshops on flint knapping, Woodland pottery, and other crafts and skills. Vermont Archaeology Month program. 10:30 – 4:30 PM
