Adult Workshop: Basics of Flintknapping

Logan Simpson archaeologists Byl Bryce and Gavin Wisner will lead a 2-hour hands-on workshop that will take you back in time to learn the ancient skills of stone tool making.

Byl and Gavin will demonstrate the many stages of reduction, starting with the raw materials and finishing with a usable tool, which will help you to understand how various types of stone tools evolved over the course of time. The instructors will cover a variety of knapping techniques including hard- and soft-hammer percussion, pressure flaking, and indirect percussion that will give you insights into prehistoric stone tool production, lithic analysis, and subsistence techniques.
