Flint Knapping book - a practical guide to creating your own stone tools.

23 x 16cm. 65 pages and over 100 illustrations in colour.

A practical guide to the ancient skill of flint knapping – the shaping of tools and weapons using naturally occurring stone. Used by our earliest ancestors, this craft was one of the more important survival skills for hundreds of thousands of years.

This guide assumes no previous knowledge and leads the reader through all the various stages involved in shaping flint (and other materials) into usable tools. It should also be useful for those that have already tried knapping and wish to further their skills. Whether your interest lies in recreating ancient artefacts, learning a new skill, keeping an ancient craft alive, making tools for Bushcraft or ‘survival’ skills or just trying something different I hope that this guide will help you appreciate the skills and intelligence needed by our ancestors.
