Flint knapping at Glastonbury

  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

When I first joined in 2005 I posted a query about someone I had spent all afternoon with making a flint arrowhead and trying friction firelighting (original thread http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8671&highlight=flint+napping+glastonbury) and although there were many views despite my spelling mistake, I did not get any replies.

I managed to solve the mystery myself this weekend, I went to Glastonbury again and spent a most pleasant couple of hours making a flint hand axe with none other than William Lord son of John.

Woo Hoo what a cracking experience that was.
