Stone Age Engineering



The book Stone Age Engineering, by Dick Baugh, is now available. This is a collection of all the articles on primitive technology he has written for the Bulletin of Primitive Technology, and the American Journal of Physics. It is printed on high quality paper with a high tech printer. This means the photos are much better than before.

Excepts from the back of the book:
"This is a collection of articles I have written on prehistoric and not quite prehistoric technology. The articles were originally published in the Bulletin of Primitive Technology, the web site and the American Journal of Physics. Don't look for any logical sequence, grand plan or hidden secret message. There isn't any. With a few exceptions such as my daughter's poem on page 15, don't pay too much attention to the words. They are just place holders separating the pictures and ideas.

My reasons for collecting them in a bound volume are numerous. I strongly feel the aging process and can't put it off too long. I want something for my family and friends to remember me by. There are very few people with my engineering and scientific education who are interested in prehistoric technology, therefore, I look at these things in an original way. I think I have some unique contributions. Because of my inherent laziness and reluctance to get my hands dirty, I do not eschew the use of power tools and modern materials for getting the job done faster and better. I hope these articles will give you a greater appreciation for what your Stone Age ancestors knew and inspire you to learn more."
