There are some great flint tools on Als, I spent just over a month there many moons ago and did a lot of field walking. Some amazing complete flint spear heads were found as well as loads of arrow heads, scrapers and the odd axe head and even a mace head. (Not all by be me). I remember swimming with tonnes of white (harmless) jelly fish, which was a strange experience, even went to a local harvest festival were the locals toasted with schnapps every two minutes.

Yes. One of the largest privat flint collections are on display just south of Nordborg. Riecks Stone collections. Jellyfish are harmless here, not like the Aussie ones that will kill you. Im still to find my first flint tool.

Trump has certainly had Stormy weather since his encounter with Stormy Daniels ...!! Although the relevations have been Atomic, one hears that it was not only the A-bombs that were dropped!!! OooO

Trump is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.. Just rewealed to let US Cars consume 500.000 barrels more Oil every day.. For him inviroment is a unknown word.
