    Abotech.com - The Cyber Shelter for Primitive Living Skills
    Man (Homo sapiens) has been successful as a species, not because he has mastered modern technologies but because he mastered the skills necessary to compete for daily survival. Each epoch in the history of man has identified at least one major skill in man's ability to change and improve his environment. These skills were basic to those beings who lived thousands and thousands of years ago and are practiced by everyone today with technical refinements and modern adaptation to fulfill our own requirements.

    Living History and Pre-1840s Buckskinning
      US - Southeast
    Living History events can run the gamut from 1750's to Civil War to World War II. Also of interest to participants are Scottish festivals and Native American pow-wows. There is no way we can list every single event in every single category, so we're going to focus on pre-1840's rendezvous & living history events in the Southeastern U.S. If you're interested in a different area or type of event, that would be a great excuse to start your own page devoted to it! Goodness knows, the Web can use it.
