Willy Kemps, an accomplished flintknapper Willy Kemps, a highly accomplished flintknapper sizes up a projectile point for further pressure flaking. Here Willy demonstrates his skills at the prehistoric art of stone tool making. Flintknapping is a useful endeavor in understanding the acquisition of raw lithic materials as well as the process of making stone tools and resulting archaeological site formation

Paleolithic Nutrition and Disease

The reconstruction of Paleolithic diets can benefit greatly from modern medical and biological sciences. Likewise, modern medical and biological science stand much to gain by utilizing archaeological, ethno-historic and contemporary hunter-gatherer diets as analogs to better understand which foods are best suited for human consumption as well as understanding causal links to disease. For more information see Dr. Kurt Harris’s website on Paleolithic nutrition and disease.
