Have you ever wanted to know how early man and prehistoric people made the stone tools they needed for survival? The art of flint-knapping is a skill that has been forgotten since the end of the Bronze Age. 

However in this Masterclass, members can come and learn to make arrowheads, spearheads, hand-axes and scrapers from brittle flint with master flint-knapper, primitive technologist and archaeologist Karl Lee. 

Karl will start our worshop with a demonstration of the techniques and processes involved in flint-knapping, before setting participants the task of making their own flint tools, using ancient tools such as hammer stones and antler hammers. He has over 20 years of experience of teaching the manufacture and use of stone (lithic), bone and wooden tools.
