The Low-Tech Collective (LTC) seeks to encourage interest, learning and experience in ancient technologies such as flaked stone, ground stone, and ceramics. Artifacts made from these technologies are some of the most frequently encountered by archaeologists and were essential components to many past people's cultural traditions. The LTC's mission is to provide members who have an interest in archaeology and ancient lifeways with opportunities to learn about and actually produce these tools.

Our current project focuses on making flaked stone tools (flint knapping). In the Spring of 2009, we plan to hold workshops with expert stone tool makers, have practical geology seminars about stone material that is best suited to flaking and collect raw material from the Hudson Valley.

LTC activities occur roughly once a month in both Fall and Spring semesters. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Cory Harris.
