2 days ago I went to the archeology day event in a small historical town called Norskedalen and I learned about flintknapping a way to turn stone into tool by chipping small pieces of stone off (called flakes) so that it is serrated. Tools such as arrowheads and knives are made this way. Flintknapping is said to be over a million years old starting with early hominids such as homo erectus.
