Dear Friend of Stony Brook,
Was it the lightning strike of an idea or a beautiful accident? Whatever the spark, with the first stone tools we took our destiny into our hands. How did this idea occur to our ancestors, and what was its impact on the early human experience?
Anthropologist and Stony Brook professor John Shea is an expert on stone tools and reveals their role in the human story. He is also a foremost flintknapper. Join him as he demonstrates the ancient technology of making stone tools—right on the Chicago Cultural Center stage—and explains how it allowed our ancestors to eke out a better life.
