" />Got sent this today, I guess email first to let them know you're coming and turn up and knap, I gather you don't need to be a member at all. Direct engagement indeed!

Yep, too far for me!
It is good that there are some sort of knapping events in the UK. Pity it's so far from here! Hrrumph.

It's very cheap for only a tenner, but limited to 65 places, so try and book early as possible.

Did anyone go to this? It was an ok day, but not really a knappin that i understand. I ended up spending a part of the day making late- meso blade cores for the archeology department.

Nope, but I was kinda tempted though, travel was an issue for me. They have just sent me another palaeo-meso type talk, I can post the link if you folks would like?

There is this coming up soon, though not a knap-in.
Experimental approaches to the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic

A one-day conference on Saturday 28th March 2015

University of Reading (Dept. of Archaeology) & Lithic Studies Society

09.30‒10.00: Registration and morning coffee
10.00‒13.00: Session 1: Oral Presentations

Oral presentations will be 20 minutes (15 minutes, plus 5 minutes for questions). There will be a poster session during lunch. Papers and posters are welcomed on all aspects of experimental archaeology as applied to the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic. The deadline for abstracts (250 words maximum) is 31st January 2015.
 
The proposed discussion themes for the afternoon workshops concern thematic and practical issues in the application of experimental archaeology to Palaeolithic and Mesolithic research:
 
·         The pre-sapiens problem (when applying experimental insights to the Palaeolithic);
·         Embedding experimentation within research projects and running long-term experiments;
·         Capacity building/skills training;
·         Venues & facilities.
 
However we welcome and will consider any suggestions for alternative discussion themes. The deadline for suggested discussion themes is 31st January 2015.
 
The conference will be in the Sorby Room, Wager Building on the main Reading Whiteknights Campus. A map of the campus can be downloaded from the University website: http://www.reading.ac.uk/about/find/about-findmap.aspx
 
Parking is available on campus: no permit is necessary at the weekend.
 
The cost of the conference is £20 (Waged) or £10 (Unwaged: Students, Unemployed & Retired), which includes all refreshments. The deadline for registration is 1st March 2015.
 
Abstracts and discussion theme suggestions should be e-mailed to me (r.hosfield@rdg.ac.uk).
