Festival of Archaeology

  • free, no booking required

Celebrate the Festival of Archaeology with us as we explore the ancient craft of Stone Age tools.

Farnham’s history as a craft town can be traced all the way back to the Stone Age period with evidence of a flint-knapping industry in the area. Knapping is the highly skilled process of shaping raw stone to make stone tools.

As part of the event Martin Rose from the Surrey Archaeological Society will be delivering a talk on Stone Age tools, followed by the chance to try your hand at soap knapping your own Stone Age tool.

There’s no need to pre-book either of these activities, so please just turn up on the day.

Part of the museum's Craft Event Programme which accompanies the current exhibition A History of Farnham Crafts.
