On Monday, Terry Ozbun from Archaeological Investigations Northwest gave a flintknapping demonstration to my intro to archaeology class. It was a perfect time for the demonstration as we have covered many tool types from Oldowan technology up to Clovis (quite a sweep!). I am tired of gesturing at photos and drawings of tools on PowerPoint slides, or waving around plastic replicas. Even YouTube clips of flint knapping pale in comparison to experiencing the real thing. For example, I had forgotten how sharp freshly made chert flakes can be. And now I have some additional lithic materials for my teaching collections. Thanks Terry!
