http://primitivepathways.com In ancient times hunters often tipped their arrows with very small stone points. Oddly these points are found all across North America and similar stone blades (called microliths) were used in Europe. Because of their small size collectors here in America theorized that they were used for hunting birds, earning these tiny points the nickname "bird points". But recent studies have proved that these tiny points were actually used for hunting big game. Always a skeptic, I often wondered how a tiny stone point could penetrate deep enough to be effective on large game. So I set up a test in which I shot a freshly killed deer with lightweight reed arrows tipped with tiny stone bird points that I chipped out of flint. Did the ancient people who used these weapons have enough punch to bring down a deer? Watch the video to see the results. Videography, editing, storyline and narration by Billy Berger. Music :Ibn al Noor and Intuit 256 by Kevin Macleod (www.incompetech.com)
