Hidden in a corner of Ohio is a big secret, some of the most beautiful flint in the world. This flint deposit was a major source of tools for the indigenous people who once populated this area, and to this day it finds use by both lapidaries and modern knappers.

In the beginning, there was design. Before any other human discipline, even before the dawn of mankind its self, design was a practice passed down from generation to generation of early humans. Today, everything that has been designed–space ships, buildings, pyramids, weapons, clothing , artwork, everything–can be traced back to a single designed object. The first designed object: the Acheulean hand
