( ) will be our first object handling and discussion session at the Ashmolean Museum with Alison Roberts. We will be looking at a broad overview of Lower Palaeolithic stone tool technology, discussing the material used and the manufacture methods. If you are a beginner to handling lithics, this is a good introduction. And for people who are more familiar with lithic collections, it is a great opportunity to share your knowledge with others.
We will be meeting on at the Ashmolean Museum side entrance on St Giles Street. The session will take 2 hours, but we have the room booked for a bit longer if you want to discuss things further.
*It is important to arrive early - if you arrive after we have gone up to the room at , you won't be able to come in. I recommend getting there at least 10 minutes early so you don't miss out.
Please RSVP if you are planning to come, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org - there is a maximum number of people allowed in the room, so the first 6 people to RSVP will be able to go. After that I will put you on a waiting list, and let you know if a place becomes available.
I hope you are looking forward to seeing some of the Ashmolean's great Palaeolithic collections!
