American Flintknappers

John C. Whittaker
Explores why stone tools attract modern people and what making them means to those who pursue this art Explains how the practice of knapping relates to professional archaeology, the trade in modern replicas of stone tools, and the forgery of artefacts Making arrowheads, blades, and other stone tools was once a survival skill and is still a craft practiced by thousands of flintknappers around the world. Knappers gather at regional knap-ins to socialize, exchange ideas and material, buy and sell both equipment and knapped art, and make stone tools in the company of others. In between these gatherings, the knapping community stays connected through newsletters and the Internet.
