  • If I had a hammer - Primitive Technology UK
    comfortable or competent in how you handle it quiet in the cheap seats My hammerstones are smaller than Karl s purely because I have teeny tiny child hands Make sure you pick one you can get a firm grip on that sits well in the hand as the last thing you want to do is fumble when you re trying to open a nodule up Bear in mind that you re often just using the weight of the hammerstone in a guided fall there s no need to put a mighty swing into every blow Let gravity and the weight of the stone do some of the work for you For best results wait for the deer to shed the antlers before using them for knapping Next out of the bag are the soft hammers Using the hammerstones will produce big chunky flakes with large bulbs of percussion the semi cone shape where the flint was struck this is fine for knocking off flakes to work but for anything more refined than roughing out you ll want to switch to something like these antler hammers see right There are a few different materials you can use for soft hammer percussion bone works alright although it s not as durable as antler apparently Lignum Vitae works although I ve never used it outside of the forge and if you want to cheat use more modern materials some types of metal hammer will work The soft hammers that Karl uses are all red deer antlers and like the stone they vary in size the one on the left in the picture I have dubbed The Beast there s no scale in the picture but it s about a cubit long I m not an obsolete measurement afficionado I just don t have a ruler to hand Sourcing antler can be both expensive and a chore I advise you to make friends with a gamekeeper or park warden and scoop them up when the deer shed Otherwise you re pretty much at the mercy of Fleabay with all that entails The reason antler and bone work is that they are softer relative to the flint which allows them to bite onto the edge of the flint and detach a thinner flake with a much smaller bulb of percussion Antler will last quite some time bone less so as soon as you ve worn through to the spongiform inside it s time to get a new hammer Be careful handling the hammer end as well as tiny little chips of flint may be embedded on the striking surface A pair of pris tine pressure flakers I ll get my coat The last tool we ll look at here are pressure flakers see left These are from the same antlers that provided the soft hammers above no need to chuck the tines away when you ve removed them they will be essential to making arrowheads and other tools where delicacy and precision are required Using

  • Introducing the Padawan - Primitive Technology UK
    earned coffee a group of tourists asked me to show them how to make a stone tool Desperately trying to remember what I d learned in my first year while nervously regurgitating Karl s spiel I hacked out a reasonable scraper I really enjoy the tactile nature of the flint and the satisfaction of making something and so here I am apprenticed and starting the long journey to becoming a flintknapper I love experimental archaeology especially the sort where I get to smack things with axes This series isn t intended to be a heavyweight academic exploration of gender issues in archaeology but hopefully you ll find it informative and entertaining Keep an eye out for posts on a fortnightly basis and do feel free to jump in on the comments section Heather Share this Facebook Twitter Google Email High Gloss Polishing of Lithic Material If I had a hammer 5 Responses to Introducing the Padawan Ali Godding 2013 11 02 at 07 02 Great post I look forward to hearing more about your flintlnapping Reply Heather Armstead 2013 11 02 at 10 25 Thanks Ali Reply Julian Cresswell 2013 11 03 at 17 39 Hi Heather Great blog type thingy I ve read your posts on various Facebook pages and look forward to more wit and information thanks for taking the time to illuminate educate Julian Reply Heather Armstead 2013 11 08 at 18 39 Thank you Julian appreciate the feedback Reply Kenneth MacKriell 2014 08 18 at 11 05 Hello Heather I ll be visiting PrimTech this year to teach the evolution of the bow If you re there I d love to hear more about your work testing the Roman panoply Ken Reply Leave a Reply to Ali Godding Click here to cancel reply Comment Name required

  • High Gloss Polishing of Lithic Material - Primitive Technology UK
    As a result I waited for a much longer haired animal to keel over on a local farm and the experiment was repeated on a much coarser longer coat This proved very interesting as the serrated edge of the tool became engaged with the hairs of the coat which prevented cutting to the flesh with speed The perfect tool for this part of the butchery process was in fact a thin un retouched edge which found its way between the hairs and cut straight to the flesh with a single motion of the arm This was very interesting as it led me to think of the practical issues of the tranchet handaxe a bifacial roughly teardrop shaped bifaces with the combination of both types of cutting edge The purpose of this tool has been debated for some time as the function of the tranchet removal scar has never been examined practically It struck me as a possibility that the tranchet removal sharp edge may have been used to make the initial skin cuts to open the carcass and possibly to remove the skin for processing Then the entire cutting edge of the tool may have been used to rip through the flesh of the animal to produce cuts of meat that were easily transportable This idea was mentioned to Matt Pope and his response noted that the only evidence of use wear polish on these tools was of meat However perhaps this should come as no surprise if the tool was only used to make 20 incisions with the sharp tranchet feature but hundreds of cuts into the fibrous meat which has a far higher abrasion effect any evidence of skin cutting may have been removed or obscured During the experiments fresh sharp edges were utilised but found to be brittle and problematic and difficult to hold certainly dangerous to use as speed On several occasions the flake and blade tools struck the bone small fragments of the flint cutting edge were detached and would therefore be left in the meat to be ingested I would imagine that if this material didn t hurt on the way in it would have been problematic on exit Moreover the stomach being a muscular organ these fragments may have led to infection and potentially death Serrated robust edges were far less likely to leave such traces in the meat and would allow for safe grip and far faster processing The real accidental discovery of this experimental work was the result of the animals blood on the surface of the tools used Every knapper I would imagine holds on to a few items they make now and again due to the aesthetic attractiveness of the piece or if using the tool for the effectiveness of the cutting edge I kept one such handaxe for several years and used it to butcher 12 deer carcasses Not only did the tool never require any retouch to sharpen it in this time it also began to display
