The Secrets of Flintknapping

Posted by Arch Soc on Thu, 29-10-2020

The Archaeology Society had the particularly unique opportunity to speak with John Lord, a master flintknapper based in Norfolk, UK, about his work and how he got into the business of flintknapping. In this episode, he talks to us about how this ancient craft works, his experience working at the famous Grimes Graves site, and how he applies his knowledge today. We get to watch him make a flint hand axe, right in front of us!
