Flint Weekend!

Join Karl Lee, one of the UK's leading primitive technologists at Kents Cavern for our flint weekend! 


SATUrday 19th & Sunday 20th AUGust 

Karl is a master flintknapper and experiential archaeologist with over 20 years of experience teaching the manufacture and use of stone, bone and wooden tools. He will be knapping in the cave all weekend, demonstrating how people in the Stone Age made their tools and talking about why this age old skill was crucial for the survival of our ancestors. Learn how prehistoric tools evolved over time and with each species of human making them, and discover the techniques and equipment required to make them.

Three different species of human occupied Kents Cavern throughout the Stone Age, with each leaving behind evidence of their existence in the form of flint tools. Listen to an echo of the past, with antlers hitting stone in the cave recreating sounds that haven’t been heard in the chambers for thousands of years.

Karl will be holding demonstrations to everyone that visits Kents Cavern on a guided tour on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th August in the last chamber of the cave.

Tours will run regularly throughout the day, last entry is at 16.30.
