About

The Course

The oldest flint tools found in Britain date to around 1 million years ago, the latest around 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!

A full weekend focused on flintknapping and stone tools! The flintknapping weekender is a deeper dive into learning lithics than our single day workshop, its an fantastic oppportunity to really get to grips with this challenging, but fulfilling craft. We'll start with the basics, which is really useful if you're new to the craft or experienced. Then we will start to climb the steps to more methods of making stone tools such as pressure flaking to make arrowheads and learning how to make thinner tools like handaxes and even knives. Our aim on these workshops is to really help students understand the process and improve their technique, we want to equip you with the skills and knowledge thast you can continue after the weekend. As well as the knapping, we will explore the archaeology of stone tools and handle some actual artefacts from the Stone Age!
