Hands-On Training in Ancient Technology

image from i2.wp.comThis here blog previously featured a sample of the interesting and fun educational projects that Allen Denoyer brings to avocational archaeologists. Allen is Archaeology Southwest's Ancient Technologies Expert and one of their Preservation Archaeologists. Archaeology Southwest recently publicized Allen's schedule of courses for the next few months in Tucson, Arizona, and we at the GCAS feel it is worthwhile to spread the word. Coming up:

Coming very soon - on February 2, 2019 - is Allen's beginner class on flintknapping, “How Did People Make and Use Stone Tools?” Make your own projectile point with replica tools!

Return with your projectile point - or make a new one - on March 16, 2019, for Allen's course on making and using an atlatl.

Go here for details of even more hands-on challenges. Thank you, Allen and Archaeology Southwest!
