Two films with French archaeologist François Briois. They are both approximately 30 mins.

In the first one different knapping methods are shown (hard hammer, soft hammer, wooden billet, wooden punch, bifaces, blades, Levallois, etc.). The second part (with partly the same footage) shows the manufacture of different tool types starting from the Paleolithic, through the Mesolithic and untill the Neolithic in central Europe.
