    Bullroarers making workshop

    Flat oval objects made from wood or bone that are swung through the air on a cord are called “bullroarers”. The noise that is made with them can be heard over long distances. Bullroarers have been known since the Paleolithic Period and are still used today in some traditional cultures. You can cut your own bullroarer out of a piece of soft wood and listen to its deep tones whose direction can hardly be pinpointed.
