Journal of Lithic Prehistory
Thanks to my SCA-induced obsession with the Thule of Greenland, I'm keen to start several Neolithic-tech projects. My first stone project shall be a slate ulu (see here and here), perhaps followed by attempts at flintknapping chert.
Firestarting and hole-forming proved as useful to the Thule as it did any other culture, and so I'll eventually get around to making a pump drill.
And though they used seal intestine and animal sinews for cordage, I'd like to have a go at twining grass/leaf fibres (ala here) to make string. And heck, if I'm any good at it and sufficiently mad enough on any given day, perhaps rope.
