Prehistoric tool making course

  • Hey Guest, We've had to cancel our 2020 Summer BushMoot PLEASE LOOK HERE for more information.
Just booked myself on this course being run at the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum, can't wait :D
The synopsis is "Working out of doors in the Museum’s grounds, you will use the methods of ancient British people to produce your own hafted tool to take home. Techniques used include flint knapping, cordage manufacture from natural figures and working with bone and antler."

And the tutors are John and Val Lord :cool:

Is that the John Lord who featured on the Ray Mears Bushcraft series?
Knapping is something I'd seriously love to have a go at, very jealous I can't go. Has to go on to the to do list. Please let us know how you get on.
