This one-day event, organised by archaeology postgraduate research students from the University of Manchester and elsewhere (in conjunction with the Manchester Museum and the Lithics Studies Society), will include flint knapping demonstrations by professional knapper, Karl Lee, as well as a variety of hands-on workshops.
