Mesolithic Microlith Arrows Friday 16th July 2021 10am - 4pm
Mesolithic Microlith Arrows
Join prehistoric archaeologist and ancient technology tutor Will Attard in exploring the tools and technologies of the Mesolithic period - some of the last of the prehistoric hunter gatherers.
Participants will be taught to craft replica Mesolithic tools to work a range of natural materials and construct a replica Mesolithic microlith arrow.
The session will begin with background on the Mesolithic of Europe, followed by the opportunity to handle artefacts and replicas from the period.
A short flintknapping and tool production demonstration will be followed by an arrow-making demo and in-depth teaching, guiding each participant through their own arrow-making process. Participants will be taking what they make on the day home with them.
Guidance will be on-hand at all times.
