Make a Bow and Arrow the (Really) Old Fashioned Way

When society collapses you’ll be glad you have these skills. Primitive Technology shows how to make a lethally effective bow and arrows using just a few stone tools.

It doesn’t end there. The (as far as I can tell) nameless maker behind Primitive Technology serves up a baker’s dozen tutorials on how to do sophisticated things with a few paleolithic tools. Make a poisonous bean non-poisonous, weave baskets with plant fibers, make a mud hut with a central-heated floor.

The blog posts and videos are all clear, straightforward and completely understandable. I only have one question – with all the time this guy spends shirtless in the wild, how does he stay so white?
