Knapping with future lithic analyists

I had a good day with archaeology students at Memorial University of Newfoundland today.  I spent the morning with Catherine Jalbert's lithic analysis class and ended the day with a student mixer where I was helping represent the Newfoundland and Labrador Archaeological Society.  During the morning class, we covered percussion knapping and we will be continuing with pressure flaking next week.

For MUN students who are interested in knapping it looks like MUNArch will be offering the flintknapping workshops again this semester.  We're finalizing the dates and topics, but it should happen late February/early March. Stay tuned for details.
