February 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Donations suggested to defray speaker cost
In this Verde Valley Archaeology Field Institute presentation, Justin Parks examines the function and role of the bow and arrow in the prehistoric Southwest through the perspective of experimental archaeology. Justin examined the surviving components of prehistoric bows and compared the artifacts to replica bows to better understand the performance the southwestern bow can achieve as well as important differences between artifacts. His findings highlighted discrete differences between artifacts that likely reflect historic descriptions of rabbit bows and war bows.
