Flint-Knapping Demonstration

Friday, Oct. 16

2:30 – 4:00 p.m. – University of West Alabama

For over 2 million years, one of the most important survival skills that our ancestors had to learn was how to make a stone tool. Stone knives, spear points, drills, awls, hide scrapers, and dozens of other tools were essential to life, so understanding how these tools were made is necessary for understanding life in the past. Trying to replicate these tools is also helpful for archaeologists trying to interpret how they were used and made. Steven Meredith, archaeologist and regional manager at Panamerican Consultants, Inc., will demonstrate. Free flint-knapping kits are available to the first 20 participants.

Location: Truelove Place, University of West Alabama, Student Union Drive, Livingston.

Admission: No charge.

Sponsor: University of West Alabama’s Black Belt Museum.
