A popular class at Sycamore Shoals State Park in Elizabethton lets people travel back in time to learn about survival skills.
The class, taught by Bob Estep and friends, lets people use primitive techniques, stone such as flint, and billets of antler, to practice the fine art of transforming flint into arrowheads, spear points, and similar sharpened objects used for hunting and defense.
The cost of the class is $110.00 for both days and includes 2 days of instruction, a flint knapping kit, and stone – all yours to keep.
Flint-Knapping is open to Adults Only and will accept a maximum of 12 students.
