Discover prehistoric heritage at Stone Age Fair

Turn off your iPods and cell phones and turn on to prehistoric life during a Stone Age Fair at NAU from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10.

Hosted by NAU’s Department of Anthropology and Anthropology Club, the fair will be held in the field between the du Bois Center and the Social and Behavioral Sciences building on south campus.

The fair will include a variety of interactive activities for discovering prehistoric heritage, such as making tools that humans used for thousands of years.

Learn to make stone tools, baskets, pottery and rope or string from plants such as yucca.
Attendees also can practice throwing their own spear using an atlatl. The atlatl, or throwing stick, is a special tool used to power a spear. See if you can hit the target and are skillful enough to hunt down a mammoth.

The Stone Age Fair is free. For information, call the anthropology department at (928) 523-3180.
