Hmm...interesting! But I bet ya 10 - 1 that the flintknappers of those times had access to some type of medical care. May have been primitive by todays standard but they probably knew more about medicinal plants and poultices than we do today.

Yep, sharp things can cut you!   ;D  It does make a person grateful for modern medical care, doesn't it?  As the author said, I've had some injuries that were severely inconvenient, but a few hundred years ago they'd have probably been fatal.
