Discover the art of the oldest craft in the world: Flintknapping. How did our earliest ancestors make tools to survive the Stone-Age?
Find out with experimental archaeologist James Dilley who will guide you through the process of making your flint tools, which you will take home. The oldest flint tools found in Britain date to around 1 million years ago, the latest 3000 years ago, so you will have the chance to try your hand at a process used for 99.7% of human presence in Britain.
The aim of the day will be for attendees to go home with a variety of different stone tools that they have made, new flintknapping skills and a new appreciation for prehistoric technology.
Dr James Dilley, with over 20 years' experience, is an archaeologist and craftsperson who specialises in prehistoric technologies.
