  • Flint Ridge Preserve and Museum (Licking County)

    Flint Ridge (part of the Appalachian Foothills) was once mined by Native Americans (starting over 10,000 years ago) for prized rainbow-colored flint. It was used for weapons, tools and ceremonial objects. Today you can visit the ancient mining pits, as well as a museum, on a preserve (part of the Ohio History Connection) in Licking County.

  • 1951 Buick XP-300 Concept Car at The Sloan Museum on My Car Story with Lou Costabile

    On "My Car Story" we're in Flint MI on 6-27-15 at the Sloan Museum 43rd Annual Auto Fair. We're looking at a 1951 Buick XP-300 Concept Car. We’re talking with Jeremy Dimick, the Curator of Collections at The Sloan Longway Musuem. According to the details shared on the Sloan Museums website regarding the 1951 Buick XP-300 Concept Car: The XP-300 was the brainchild of Charles Chayne, GM’s vice president in charge of engineering. Its name is derived from the name “experimental” (XP) and the fact that it is powered by a 300+ hp supercharged V8 engine. Chayne reported that he attained a top speed of 140 miles per hour in the car. The exterior of the car is typical of the “long and low” style that many GM stylists promoted in the 1950s. Over 16 feet in length, the XP-300 has only 6 ½ inch...

So, I went to admire the famous large flint blades in Le Grand-Pressigny museum of prehistory. I videotaped part of the video shown in the museum, but maybe an official full version is already somewhere on the web. [update 2015 07 21 : on channel Neo02Manu, the full version has just been uploaded ; see https://youtu.be/KYXEydMxUqI "Grand Pressigny Museum flint knapping video of blade making " ; the beginning shows how to shape the big core ; the end shows the making of a simple knife from a huge blade ] Interesting points underlined by the exhibition : - the production of these large flint blades is contemporary of the end of the european neolithic period and lasted 400 years : 2800-2400 BC ; - copper and bronze tools already existed but were still scarce ; - the large blades (largely exported over europe) were used mainly as sickles by the agriculturalists ; other blades were transformed into daggers ; when broken, the blades were turned in more common flint tools ; - flint cores discarded after the production of the blades were discovered in great numbers in the fields locally ; See also http://www.prehistoiregrandpressigny.fr/en/editorial/45/the-museum-and-its-exhibitions.html The knapper in the vid is said to be Jacques Pelegrin. I did not videotaped the credits part, but found the info in the museum booklet (in french, page 19, § "cave 3", wwwww.prehistoiregrandpressigny.fr/presse/20091014171409.pdf). He his an archeologist known for his experimentations and seems to be considered the best [in France] at producing such large blades. Textual explanations about the technique, by Jacques Pelegrin, found in in "Skilled Production and Social Reproduction - Aspects of Traditional Stone-Tool Technologies Proceedings of a Symposium in Uppsala, August 20--24, 2003" [at http://www.sau.se/filarkiv/rapporter/skilled_production.pdf] , page 62 to 66 : The Grand-Pressigny long blades detached from the "livre-de-beurre" cores (western France; J. Pelegrin 2002)". Many other chapters of this huge 450-pages-publication describe also techniques and flint products of the old world [ex. Northern Europe, Danish Daggers, Long blade technology in the old world : sites in Greece, Bulgaria, Syria, France, Sardinia, Portugal], in the new world [ex. sites in Patagonia, Argentina, ...], in Australia. May be the central place to learn something :-) [tags in description : jacques Pelegrin Pélegrin flintkapping knapping knives flint prehistory museum taille de silex grandes lames selce pedernal livre de beurre Chalcolithic Ле-Гран-Пресиньи кремень 燧石 大量生产 大燧石刀片 先史時代 大フリントブレード préhistoire preistoria ]

Over 16 feet in length, the XP-300 has only 6 ½ inches of ground clearance. The body panels are made of heat-treated aluminum, which reduces the overall weight of the car to 3,100 pounds. The body and frame structure are welded into a solid unit. Wide brake drums allow for a double set of brakes. Quick Facts Year: 1951 Make: Buick Model: XP-300 Weight: 3,125 lbs Wheelbase: 116 Engine: Supercharged V-8 Horsepower: 335 Units Produced: 1 If you’re interested in seeing the cars, the Museum is located at 303 Walnut Street.
