About

Discover the art of the oldest craft in the world: Flintknapping. How did prehistoric people make tools to survive the Stone Age?

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.

Dr James Dilley is an archaeologist and craftsman who specialises in prehistoric technologies with over 18 years of experience. James has worked with museums and heritage centres around the UK such as The British Museum and Stonehenge and alongside media companies such as the BBC, Channel 4, ITV, Smithsonian Channel and National Geographic.

Please note, this workshop is for ages 15+ and is not suitable for children.
