A 3,000-year-old flint knife complete with its wooden handle has been uncovered in southern Zealand, Denmark. The knife dates to the Bronze Age, but when the supply of metal could not keep up with demand, artisans crafted tools from old materials with new designs.

Stone tools dating from between 26,000 and 19,000 years ago have been found at six locations near the coast of North America. These discoveries are fact not theory. The new findings date much earlier than Clovis - bringing them into chronological contemporeignty with the Solutrean (known primarily from Iberia and SW France). Further, chemical analysis of a stone knife found in Virginia has revealed it was made from flint with an origin in France.

This great piece of Knife River flint was used for a St Louis Clovis, a hand-held knife from the paleoindian era.

Perhaps it's claimed dat is 300,000 years BCE & the date above is simply a typo? The simplest explanation in my opinion is usually the most likely one. At…
