Knapping Presentation by Van King - March 13, 2009

Click on most images for larger views...

Van's topic was "Flint Knapping - Making Chipped Stone Tools"
We had a sellout crowd!  We went to the closet twice for additional chairs!

Van discussed how these early treasures were made; he uses only traditional tools & methods for knapping.

A bad "stitch" by Your Webmaster, but you can see that everyone paid attention to the demonstration!

Van brought lots of goodies for us to look at, including his knapping tools!
Everyone loved it! Lots of questions afterthe presentation
Great presentation! Van took lots of questions, too.
