7th June 2014: Workshop for Bexley YAC


On 7th June, I went to London Borough of Bexley (Kent) to run two workshops: one for the Bexley Young Archaeologist Group in the morning and one for parents and adults; some part of the Bexley Archaeological Group that was set up in 1979.

There were two sessions for all the YACs - while one group went on a training dig with the BAG archaeologists, the other group stayed with me, before we swapped around.

After a discussion on the Stone Age and an opportunity for the YAC members to and study my flint tool replica's and touch or try on various animal skins, everyone enjoyed the flintknapping workshop and produced some good results for first-time flintknappers !!

Comments from Bexley YAC leader Fran:

"James came to the Bexley YAC. He was extremely knowledgeable and excellent with the children. He set out a lovely display of furs and tools and talked to the children before they started knapping. He was extremely patient and the children all thoroughly enjoyed the session, everyone took away a knapped piece of flint which resembled a tool. Excellent value for money and would recommend him to other groups and schools."
