Caught Knapping

This week is National Archaeology Week. To celebrate it we visited Cresswell Crags to see one of Paul's heroes in action.

Above is the well known flint knapper John Lord demonstrating the skill and precision needed to manufacture a hand axe. Later he and his son, William, demonstrated how to throw spears and how to use a bow and arrow. Great fun was had by all and the children loved it.
