Angry Bovine Speared

This past Saturday the Grinnell College Department of Anthropology hosted the annual Atlatl spear throwing event called “Raging Cow.” The club at Grinnell is made up of students, faculty and other people interested in prehistoric technologies.  The Grinnell Atlatl group is run by Professor John Whittaker.  This year brought in people from all over the surrounding area, including some from Missouri as well as members of the Anthropology Club at Cornell College.  The Raging Cow, named because of one of the Atlatl targets, has a large angry bovine painted every year by Grinnell Anthropology majors.
