JAROM

 

Jarom 1:6 And they were scattered upon much of the face of the land (Illustration): Nephites & Lamanites Multiply & Spread Upon the Face of the Land -- Preclassic communities in Mesoamerica,. [John F. Henderson, World of the Ancient Maya, p. 37]

 

Jarom 1:8 In iron and copper, and brass and steel, making all manner of tools of every king (Illustration): Sahagun's Florentine Codex pictures an Aztec metalworker plying his craft with a very simple but effective apparatus. Molten copper pours from the crucible into a mold to form an axe head. [John L. Sorenson, Images of Ancient America, p. 53]

 

Jarom 1:8 In iron and copper, and brass and steel, making all manner of tools of every kind (Illustration): (a) The practical quality of metal tools like these mainly of copper, left much to be desired. They did not retain a good cutting edge for long. A stone axe was cheaper and about as effective as one with a metal head.9 (b) Custom-finished obsidian tools were sometimes made from large, semiprepared chunks of the raw material at or near markets, where customer needs could be matched more easily than at the obsidian source. (c) Skilled men used an antler tip or a bone point to press at key points on chunks of the volcanic glass, splitting off thin fragments one after another. [John L. Sorenson, Images of Ancient America, p. 52]

 

Jarom 1:8 Making all manner of tools of every kind (Illustration): (a) Ancient tools and their modern equivalents are shown paired. (b) Either a stone-tipped stick or a pole with its wooden end hardened by fire serve for digging. (c) One type of drill was rotated by the back-and-forth motion of a bowstring. [John L. Sorenson, Images of Ancient America, p. 52]

 

Jarom 1:8 Weapons of war . . . the dart (Illustration): An artist's sketch of a hunter about to throw an atlatl dart illustrates how that instrument functioned. [John L. Sorenson, Images of Ancient America, p. 131]
