Although most of the research related to this article involves sling bullets found in Scotland, the article does point out that similar bullets have been around since biblical times. And bullets like these have been found in the Holy Land usually dated to the Hellenistic and Roman periods.

I found this article on proper use of the hyphen at The Chronicle of Higher Education more interesting than I probably should. I remember that during the writing of my dissertation, a serious discussion took place over whether it should be Luke-Acts with a hyphen or Luke–Acts with an en dash or en-dash (I have seen it spelled both ways). It was decided that Luke-Acts with a hyphen should be used when referring to these two books as a unity. But Luke–Acts should be used when referring to Luke through Acts as it relates to contact. That is shaving with mighty fine razor!
