Stone tool making is humankind's earliest known technology. It dates back more than 3 million years. They don’t look like much, but the simplest stone tools can cut, scrape, pierce, and pound better than any human hand. There’s more to fashioning a useful tool from a lump of stone than one might imagine. Quickly review the history of stone tools from the beginning of the archaeological record to very recent times. Numerous actual examples will be brought to class for examination. Then try your hand at knapping your own tools in the last session.
