The Mastodon Hunt by Hermann Trappman © Neily Trappman Studio

The drawing of this projectile point is of an ancient design called Clovis. 

This artifact was found on the east beach (Tampa side) near the Courtney Campbell Causeway by artist, Dean Quigley. It is 4″ long and about a quarter-of-an-inch thick. It is fluted up from its base. Many points like this have been found in the bay area. The people who produced these points are called the Clovis culture.Atlatl demo by Hermann Trappman © Neily Trappman Studio

A dart may have been sent on its way by a throwing stick known today as an atlatl. It is balanced in the hand using the same technique as throwing a baseball.

There is evidence of atlalts in America over 10,000 years old.

In Europe, there is evidence that dates back to 30,000 years ago.

The Aucilla River archaeological site has provided a wealth of information about the Clovis Culture in Florida.
