Making a Bronze Age arrowhead

1pm – 5pm
4 hours
15 Jun

Find out what Bronze Age people used to do in Hulme on a Saturday afternoon. Probably. I am an archaeologist and stone tool specialist working at the University of Manchester. In the first part of this workshop I will discuss why stone tools have been fundamental in helping us understand prehistory. I will then lead you through the process of using a hard stone hammer, soft antler hammer and copper pressure flaker to produce your own Bronze Age arrowhead. This course is designed for beginners but previous participants are of course welcome. The price is £20 (£15 concs.) pay on the day. Because of the licencing arrangements this is not suitable for children. This will be the last workshop for a couple of months as I will be on fieldwork throughout July and early August.
