On October 30th, 2020, the Puget Sound Knappers recieved a request, via their website, to support the Doctoral research of Felicia De Pena.  Felicia, a flintknapper, archaeologist, and educator, wished to join the PSK and get our help in her research for her doctoral dissertation on flintknapping of the Epipalaeolithic period of the Levant (Middle East/Jordan).

The PSK was more than willing to assist in whatever way possible!   It just so happens that the webmaster, James Keffer, hosts a weekly knap-in at his shop in Sammamish each Friday and had the resouces and knappers to make this happen. It didn't take any effort to recruit the regular attendees and a couple of others to participate in this endeavor!
