Flintknapping Stone Shapers

Flintknapping stone Shapers Stones rocked during the Stone, Bronze, and Iron ages. Not only were they used for survival by our ancestors, human technology evolved from those learned skills. Throughout the three ages, flintstones were the main tools used in prehistoric human life. The stone is broken with a sharp blow to knock off flakes (knapping). Our cave folk ancestors are referred to as flintknappers or knappers for short.Survival UsesHuntingThe flintknapping stone shapers needed to hunt and kill animals for food to eat. Flint knapping tools were helpful. Arrowheads knapped from flint were often used for the kill. When the animal was ready for cutting and hide scraping, the flintknapper used other stones, antlers, and bones to knock the flint to create the tools needed. Later, after the feasting and before the next hunt, the tools needed to be re-sharpened. The knapper easily accomplished this by knocking more flakes away. This way the tools were re-used rather than discarded. Re-cycling was definitely big back then! Spearheads were also created for the hunt and eventually fashioned with wood so the hunters could throw it like a harpoon.[read the rest]
