As a prehistoric hunter, how would you go about providing tools needed for daily survival? This dvd explains and shows the process of flaked stone tool manufacturing. This video is a great addition to any flintknapping library and is being shown in many beginning archaeology courses in universities and colleges throughout North and South America (and some in Europe). It has also been well received in primary and secondary classrooms. Flintknapping has also been acclaimed by beginning and intermediate knappers as a great instructional tool. The dvd is 45 minutes long and works well with a 1 hour class. The dvd is indexed with chapters so it is easier to view specific areas of interest.
"I watched your video with a couple friends this week. I haven't seen it for a long time and when I first watched it several years ago it seemed like magic. I've done a couple of demos lately and have tried to figure out ways to keep them more interesting during the relatively long thinning and shaping stage without switching midway through to a prepared piece. That's what really struck me about your demo -- when you are ready to start making the point you are already halfway there and the audience was kept interested all the way along. AND they learn the difference between uniface/biface and cutting/scraping without even switching tools. Amazing to watch. I have lots to learn." Tim Rast
