The Inuit around Hudson Bay have forgotten how to make the hunting weapons used by their ancestors. Can a white man from Virginia teach them the old ways? Yup. Can aboriginal peoples teach 'smoderns's about adaptability, patient attention to craft, and working with resources at hand? Yup. Primitive Technology celebrates ... craft and the patient detective work involved in learning endangered skills. Fascinating stuff, and a good way to get the feeling of anthropology in action. Primitive Technology li: Ancestral Skills continues the tradition of preserving this heritage. Through this collection, assembled from the Bulletin of Primitive Technology, we step into the past to relearn old ways, and share them with the future. Learn to create stone tools that may be used to fabricate more complex technologies. Master the art of the bow and arrow, and the preparation of food. Build a shelter or fashion clothing from fibers or buckskin. Primitive Technology Il: Ancestral Skills will guide you to a better understanding of the skills and crafts that bind us all into this great human family.
