[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.

To a young Jane Jacobs, Greenwich Village, with its winding cobblestone streets and diverse makeup, was everything a city neighborhood should be. The activist, writer, and mother of three grew so fond of her bustling community that it became a touchstone for her landmark 1961 book The Death and Life of Great American Cities.
