Stone Age Teaching

Don Troop reports in the Chronicle on an experimental archeology course taught by Washington College’s Bill Schindler in which students not only manufacture their own stone blades but then learn how to use them to skin a deer. (One wonders if “experiential archeology” isn’t the word wanted here.)

What I find particularly interesting is that the man in the photo below is named Tom Pitre — Pitre is a common name here in South Louisiana.
