Try www.spider-strands.com/thrown.html. There are about a half dozen links there to sites with information on atlatls. I know, because I run the site. As for your other question. Can someone out there come up with the exact quote from Roger Ascham's "Toxophilus" where he complained about the younger generation using a piece of cork between the grip and hand to rest the arrow upon? At least I think I heard there was such a quote. The exact details I'm not sure of, however.
