Competition 1 Entry Thread

Post by Webmaster on Tue Aug 21, 2012 8:40 pm

Please use this topic for guessing only


The Competition

Contestants watch the video below.

The video shows a piece of flint in flake stage (shown before 0:55) and preform stage (shown after 0:57).

Contestants must and must estimate how much time it took to knap the piece of flint from flake to preform stage.

Entries must be in the form of minutes and seconds.

The prize is the finished piece of point shown in the video. The closest guess will recieve it mailed to them free of charge.

Multiple guesses are allowed, however read rules 8 and 9 carefully before making multiple guesses.

Any queries please post in the Competition Discussion Topic.

Thanks to everyone who participated, the competition is now closed.

The correct time is 17mins 32 seconds, (full video below), which make Kawasemi the winner, congratulations. In line with the rules he now must claim his prize before midnight on the 15th of October and I will send it to him.
