Demonstrating Stone Age Tools at the St. Fagans Fair

Staff Exchange date: 
Monday, 25 May, 2015 to Friday, 29 May, 2015
Presenting different Stone Age Tools on the Crafts Fair in St. Fagans; Demonstrating Flint Knapping Techniques; Educating visitors, but also Staff from other OpenArch-partners as repetition of the Stone Workshop in Albersdorf in 2013

The Educator Werner Pfeifer from the Archaeological-Ecological Centre Albersdorf (Germany) presented and demonstrated for a whole day flint-knapping and stone working from mesolithic and neolithic times and educated in advanced flint-techniques, not only the public but also the colleagues from other OpenArch-partners.
There was very little time for a break for Mr. Pfeifer because of the very interested and well informed Welsh public (see attached report!).
The organisation of the event by the colleagues of St. Fagans was excellent.
