Time Team America

Flintknapping

2:22

Ian Thompson, Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the Choctaw nation of Oklahoma, is an experienced flintknapper. He describes the practice as an indigenous art form. Using a stone with high silica content, flintknappers chip away at the rock until it is transformed into a sharp edge cutting tool. Archaeologists learn a lot about past people when they uncover these bits of ancient technology.
