Flintknapping is the art of shaping flint, chert, or glass into tools.  Join Jason King and Kathryn Chapman from the Center for American Archaeology to learn how prehistoric people shaped arrowheads, knives, hoes, and more.  We’ll provide some local chert and tools for you to shape your own point using pressure flaking techniques.
