Why would someone cook rocks? Prehistoric Native Americans often heat-treated (or cooked) certain varieties of chert (flint) to improve its knapping quality (or flaking ability) to make it easier to manufacture their stone tools. Come and join the Taylor Center of Natural History staff for our chert heat-treating experiments as part of our Archaeology Month activities. These heat-treated samples will become part of our comparative chert collection

This Event is a part of Archaeology Month.  During the month of September, the DHPA and other organizations celebrate and highlight archaeology throughout the state.  To learn more about Archaeology Month,
