1999 Great Trail Festival
Week 1
see week 2

Here's a few pictures from the 1st of 2 weekends at The Great Trail Festival in Malvern, OH. Several artisians demonstrated acquired skills including candle making, basket weaving, wood carving, gun smithing and of course flint knapping. I had many interesting and informative conversations with those interested as we shared our knowledge about times past and the paleolithic people.

To get things started, here I'm "warming up" so-to-speak by pressure flaking a 2.5" arrowhead.

As I'm busy in the demonstration ring, Sharon readies herself for the days activities by meeting a member of the bagpipers.

Buckskinners today find great pleasure in reliving yesterday by setting up primitive camps using traditional materials and dressing in period costumes.

As we strolled through camp in the morning I took the opportunity to take a photo of Sharon poising in the buckskin dress she made.

A popular attraction (next to the flint knappers) at Great Trail is the gun shop. Watch the men as they demonstrate the barrel rifiling, lock inletting and stock shaping to produce such fine pieces.
