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!
Join us at our workshop in Norfolk where James will guide you through the process of making your flint tools to take home at the end. This workshop is an introduction to flint knapping where the aim of the day will be for attendees to go home with a variety of different stone tools they have made, new flintknapping skills and a new appreciation for prehistoric technology.
Please bring suitable outdoor clothing and shoes as this course takes place outside. Participants must wear long trousers and closed shoes, regardless of weather.
