Woah! I know what we're doing this weekend!

Sunday, April 5, 2009: "Spring Knap-In":

Michigan Flintknappers.

Michigan artisans demonstrate the ancient art of chipping razor-sharp tools from stone, and members of the Great Lakes Primitives demonstrate stone-age technologies for starting a fire, making cordage from plant materials, and gathering wild edibles and medicinal plants. Also, the Michigan Atlatl Association holds a tournament at noon to test members' skills with the prehistoric spear thrower, and the Chelsea Rod & Gun Club 3-D archery course is open to archers for a $9 fee. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Chelsea Rod & Gun Club, 7103 Lingane Rd. (south off Waterloo Rd., west of Chelsea). Free. (810) 231-2314.

Not only does it sound fascinating, but it is a perfect fit with our current history studies!
