TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

NAME: THE MAJORCAN SLINGERS

The Majorcan slingers are well known from the year 700 B. C. when they bravely defended the island from the attack by Greek and Phoenician pirates throwing stones with their slings. They also won Punic Wars against the Romans. They became well known and valued in the ancient Mediterranean, being highly prized as mercenaries. In ancient times to know how to use the sling was essential for survival. The sling is one of the oldest weapons of humanity and consists of two ropes or straps holding a flexible bag to host the projectile (usually a stone). At present time this art has been recovered and has become an athletic mode.
