Have you ever wondered how the boomerang was invented? Well, according to this website, no one knows. However, Rangs Boomerangs (which makes boomerangs) gives a nice overview of what is known. For example, boomerangs have been used by the Australian Aborigines and have been found in other ancient cultures in Egypt, Stone Age Europe and the Indian subcontinent. A link under the History of the Boomerang offers a thesis that traces the boomerang back to "throwing wood" (approx. 5000 B.C.). The authors also explain how the boomerang works and offers tips for throwing a boomerang. The Boomerang Info section will alert you to boomerang demonstrations and workshops. Of course, the company also highlights its own boomerang products.
