Victoria Gallery & Museum: Garstang Festival Open Day – Flint Knapping
Venue: Victoria Gallery & Museum
Times: 11:00 - 11:45
The Garstang Festival of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology is a celebration of the University of Liverpool Department and Garstang Museum past and present. For the first time ever, the Department is fully opening its doors to the public, giving people the opportunity to learn about and participate in the interesting research being carried out here within ACE.
In this bookable 45 minute activity, Jason Hall of the UOL Archaeology Department will demonstrate the basics of flint knapping, a process used to make stone tools for over 3 million years. In this session, you will also get the chance to try flint knapping for yourself and create your own Palaeolithic tool to take home.
Duration: 45 minutes
