Karl Lee, Flintknapper

I’m Karl Lee, a master flintknapper and experiential archaeologist with over 20 years experience of teaching the manufacture and use of stone (“lithic”), bone and wooden tools.

Special Offer for Schools and Museums for 2018

I have an online shop where you can buy my British hand made replicas. These include flint, antler, bone and wood tools all crafted using prehistoric techniques. Please feel free to get in touch with any comments or questions using the form on my contact page, as any feedback is much appreciated.

“Karl’s knowledgeable, but easy style of presentation encouraged lots of participation. … I would have no hesitation in recommending Karl warmly to deliver workshops to other groups.”

With kind permission from John Piprani, of the University of Manchester: ‘a first edit of five days production with experimental archaeologist Karl Lee. Materially it resulted in a series of ‘blade points’, and characteristic debitage for each of four (heuristic) stages that comprise the production process.’
