Visit to Cranbrook December 9, 2013

During our December visit to Cranbrook, we were able to explore the museum on our own. The highlight of our visit, however, was trying our hands at flint-knapping, or the making of flaked or chipped stone tools.  Dr. Stafford, a master flint-knapper, taught us how to shape our stones into a sharp tool using elk antlers.
