The Art of Flint Knapping

Flint knapping is the age-old art of making arrowheads and other edged stone tools. Gerry Goth, Town of Berry resident, has been flint knapping for many years, and we are happy to be hosting a display featuring several arrowheads Gerry has made and the tools he uses to create stone points. Stop by the library for a look, and you’ll see why flint knapping is considered an art.
