The thirteenth edition of the Flint Knapping Symposium will take place this year. The practical annual conference in training and continuing education is dedicated to professionals in the field of flint knapping. The program will take place from May 29 to June 1, 2019 at the archeoParc in Val Senales valley, with work sessions planned as well as excursions to the surrounding area. One excursion is scheduled to the Val di Non area, another to the site of the discovery of the Iceman.
The participants, from various countries, will exchange practical experience and theoretical knowledge on the art of lithic reduction, on the identification of raw materials that are suitable for chipping, and on the chipping techniques. The working days will be accompanied by a series of mini-events associated with the conference, including a dinner with typical local products from Val Senales valley.
