Join experimental archaeologist Dr James Dilley who will guide you through the process of making your flint tools to take home at the end. 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!
This workshop is an introduction to the skill of flint knapping. You will go through the techniques and the aim of the day is for everyone to be able to go away and replicate what they have learnt.
