Event Description

CASPER, Wyo. – Celebrate archaeology at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center this summer with a flint knapping workshop from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 29.

History buffs, hunters, or anyone else interested in participating are invited to join Bureau of Land Management archaeologist, Patrick Walker, to learn the historical art of flint knapping in this hands-on class. Participants will learn about different types of projectiles used in the area as well as test their dexterity with beginner knapping techniques.

“Walker has a knack of working with the public to make history come alive,” says Trails Center education technician, Stacey Moore. “His classes fill quickly, and his students leave happy with all that they have learned.”

The workshop is free to the public, but space is limited. Registration is required. The workshop is limited to adults only. Please register at

Registrants will receive an email confirmation of their successful registration for the workshop. Beginner knapping supplies will be provided. However, participants should bring their own safety glasses and gloves.
