Upcoming Educational Events!

As summer slowly passes and falls approaches, we wanted to let you know where we will be demonstrating in the next few months.

On Saturday, August 16th we will be spending the day at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park for their annual Crockett Days Celebration.  The Saturday/Sunday event is full of 18th century demonstrations, re-enactments, and a host of activities highlighting Davy Crockett and his contributions to our history.

During the day, Bob will be demonstrating flint-knapping, atlatl, and varied primitive skills.  I will be setting a pot of natural dye and sharing various plants and natural colors, in addition to demonstrating weaving with naturally dyed wool yarn.

Call the park located in Limestone, Tennessee at 423-257-2167 for additional information

Saturday and Sunday, October 4 and 5 is the annual Fort Watauga Knap-In at Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area in Elizabethton, Tennessee!   In celebration of Tennessee Archaeology Week,  this weekend presents a great opportunity for traditional knappers and primitive skills folks to get together and share the skills and survival techniques that they so enjoy.

For information on this event you can email Bob at roanknapper@embarqmail.com
