Stone Tools in Prehistoric Times

Stone Tools in Prehistoric Times

Do you want to know how people in prehistoric times made their tools?

The workshop “Stone Tools in Prehistoric Times” introduces participants to the basics of the technology of making cut and polished stone tools. It includes a small exhibition of different stone raw materials, where participants will have the opportunity to learn about the types of rocks that people in prehistoric times used to make tools, and they will also learn why those rocks were so popular.

Our experts will demonstrate the basic techniques of making stone tools, and the very act of stone processing, characteristic, above all, of the Stone Age (Palaeolithic, Mesolithic, and Neolithic), when stone tools were most widely used, will also be illustrated. All interested visitors will have the opportunity to briefly step into the role of a prehistoric man, and try to make a tool themselves and/or use it in the intended way. Through their own experience and interactive work, they will be able to find out and evaluate how much effort, experience, and time was needed to make stone tools, as well as what purpose the cut and polished stone tools had in prehistoric times.
