Butser Knapping Weekend

Butser Knapping Weekend

We are delighted to announce we have been invited to Butser Ancient Farm for a weekend of flint knapping and prehistoric tool-making on the 11th and 12th August 2018.

There is no formal structure to the event – but we are privileged to have professional flint knapper John Lord on hand to offer his experience and advice.

This is an excellent opportunity for those wishing to share and enhance their current skills as well as those hoping to develop new skills and expertise.

We are pleased to confirm that prices will be held at last year’s rates: £50.00 per person (£40.00 for students/unwaged) and £20.00 for a single day. If you would like to book, please visit the website at http://www.lithics.org/events/butser-knapping-weekend/ before the deadline (TBC for 2019). If you are not already a member of the Lithics Studies Society, you will be required to join at the time of booking.

Please bring your own goggles/safety glasses, sturdy gloves, robust footwear, and knapping kit. You should also bring sufficient food and drink to last the weekend, including something to BBQ on Saturday night.

Please ensure that you are fully equipped for camping at Butser Ancient Farm and bring a tent and sleeping bag along with you. There may also be the opportunity to sleep in the Iron Age roundhouse for a truly unforgettable experience!
