16006 - Native Warrior Attacking with War Club

W. Britains

This warrior swings a simple and ancient combat weapon; the war club. This device has been employed as long as there has been armed conflict. Evidence of blunt-force trauma wounds inflicted by such clubs date back as far as 10,000 years where bands of prehistoric hunter-gatherers clashed in Kenya. In North America the Ball Club was used by many native warriors. There are two types; stone ball clubs where a rounded stone head would be attached to a wooden handle and wooden ball clubs where the head would be carved from one piece of wood – the latter chiefly used by the Huron and Iroquois tribes in the east. Optimally the head would be fashioned from burl wood, a dense, rounded outgrowth on a tree trunk or branch formed by stress such as an injury or fungal infection.
