Have You Ever Wondered How Indians Made Arrow Points?
This kids from Furlow Charer School recently took a trip to the Ocmulgee Indian mounds in Macon. The museum was full of interesting artifacts, including arrowheads and atlatl points. We visited the temple mound and went into the reconstructed earth lodge. You should visit there sometime.
Here is a picture my mom took as me and my dad started the hike to the see the mounds.
Here is an interesting video which shows you the basics of how to make an arrowhead. Of course, the ancient indians did not have glass. They used flint, chert or obsidian (natural volcanic glass.) If you try this yourself PLEASE BE CAREFUL. Broken glass is super sharp and will cut you! Maybe get your dad to try it first.
Q. How do you run a successful business AND try to drive all of your customers away?
