Flint and Hammer Stone Discovery

Flint and Hammer Stone Discovery

We recently salvaged a pile of Flint in the woods of North Brookfield, MA. The stone is not likely native to the area and much is still a mystery about its origins. We hope to learn some traditional flint knapping techniques in the near future.

 

Pile of Flint

While we were stacking the flint from the ground into a wooden crate I came across this rounded stone. I put it in my back pocket with the thought that it might be an unsplit piece of flint. When getting back to the office we began handling the stone and realized its ergonomic shape was not likely a natural formation but rather shaped by mans hand.
