Museum specimens of rare artifacts often have enlightening individual stories. They also serve as models for replications that can be directly tested, giving us examples of particular technologies, and some insights into their capabilities and possible uses. The Aztec Atlatl in the British Museum, and the unusual atlatls recovered by Cushing’s 19th century excavations in Florida are examples of well known but little studied artifacts.
