Back by popular demand, Phil Harding leads this study day held at Wessex Archaeology.
Phil provides hands-on training to identify the differences between struck and worked flint, and describes in detail the typical characteristics of flint tools from the Palaeolithic and later. Phil also gives a practical demonstration of how flints are struck and worked.
The day begins with an introductory lecture followed by plenty of opportunities to handle and examine struck and worked flint. Phil’s approach is one of teaching how to analyse and identify in a methodical manner and so the day finishes with a practical session where participants are able to informally test their newly gained knowledge. This is very much a confidence building day, with where newly gained skills can be applied to future fieldwork and finds processing.
We recommend you bring a packed lunch. Tea and coffee will be provided.
Meeting point: Wessex Archaeology, Portway House, Old Sarum Park, Salisbury, SP4 6EB
