Junior Editors Quit on FLINT QUESTION: When was flint first discovertd? ANSWER: Men were using flint for tools and weapons even before they started writing down their history so we cannot fix an exact date for its discovery. But flint arrowheads have been found that were made more than 50,000 years ago. Flint is a very hard substance that chips easily so it was natural that prehistoric man should use it long before he learned to work with metals. The time in which man used flint for arrowheads, knives and spears is referred to as the Stone Age. Flint also can be used to strike sparks for starting fires. It is probable that early man started his fires with flint sparks. The pioneers of America had a use for flint, too. The powder charges in their flintlock rifles were touched off by flint sparks. FOR YOU TO DO: If there is a museum near your home, examine its collection of flint arrowheads and knives. Notice how some of them were chipped into shape by excellent workmen. These are products of what is called the Late Stone Age. (Amy Watanabe of Kailua, Hawaii, wins $10 for this question.
