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.

[2012 05 12] Tips & tricks - Glimpses into Le Grand-Pressigny museum of prehistory, during a quick trip to a famous flint country. [[[ update june 2014 : don't miss http://youtu.be/qLPkKWRRjTA ("Challenges of the Past - Experimental Archaeology in Lejre" - by user "TheDanishFlinthead") particularly around 3:48 and around 4;50 for short demos by Jacques Pelegrin : producing large blades and using a giant primitive pressure flaker ]]] I tried for a while to find in the fields some real prehistoric tools... but didn't stumble upon anything. 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 chann...

Dan Kärrefors was filmed on the 18th of May 2013 during the 13th International Flintknapping Symposium in Haderslev (Denmark) on the grounds of Museum Sønderjylland - Arkæologi Haderslev . The different video sequences were recorded by Lisbeth Christensen (Arkæologi Haderslev), Hans F. Hein† & Wulf Hein (Germany) and Klaus Hirsch (Arkæologi Haderslev). Photos were taken by Klaus Hirsch and Lisbeth Christensen. Material: Matte Danian Flint (mat danienflint), collected on the island of Als.

http://primitivepathways.com Learn how to heat treat flint so you can make sharper arrowheads that are more colorful and easier to chip. Heat treating makes the stone more glassy and gives much sharper edges, though it does reduce its durability somewhat. The higher the temperature, the more glassy (but weaker) the stone will become, so it's best to heat treat flint to a temperature where its workability is improved, but it still has some strength. That gives the best combination of durability and lethal sharpness for hunting.
