In the craft world of the modern age, bone seems to be a rather neglected raw material that is rarely used for much of anything. But that was not always so, and fortunately Dave was willing to come on the podcast and share a little bit of his experience and insight on the craft of working with bones and antlers.

Dave is a re-enactor of the early medieval period and a bone crafter who specializes in replicating artifacts of that time period. We chat about the history, archaeology, artifacts, methodology, and manufacture of bone implements. Overall, I found this to be a very fascinating and informative conversation, hopefully you enjoy it as much as I did!

I also hope we can change our perspective on how bone was used historically, and garner some ideas on what we can make with it now!
