The Fall Knap-In at Fort Watauga will be held Saturday, Sept. 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Knapping – with a “K” – has nothing to do with sleep! Knapping is the art of making stone tools, and the Knap-In at Fort Watauga is the park’s celebration of Tennessee Archaeology Week. Those attending can watch skilled craftspeople make arrowheads, spear points and other early survival tools.
There will also be demonstrations of bow and arrow and atlatl throughout the day.
