Stone tools have been used by humans for millions of years. Discover the history of stone
tools, their importance in human evolution, and practice this age-old skill. Participants in
this 2-day workshop will learn basic to intermediate flintknapping, including percussion
and pressure techniques, as well as blade and flake tool technology.
All workshop participants are asked to bring the following:

• Sharp pocketknife or sheath knife
