Bringing the Stone Age into Cyber-Space

Knappers Anonymous is an online collection of notes, essays,and images from a wide range of sources -- all concerned with the topic of flintknapping. 

Hey everybody, Hopefully this will be a new year for Knappers Anonymous and i will continually be updating. Since I have taken over I have not taken my role as serious as i should have. I think i have all of the site links fixed but am not sure right now about links to other websites. I will be checking them this week and fix the ones that need fixing. I would appreciate any help in finding dead links. If you want anything posted just let me know. My email is listed on the bottom of this page and on a lot of other pages in the site. Hope you enjoy
