Larry made as many tools and points as he could from a single 14 lb. nodule of Crescent Quarry Burlington. The link is to Pete Bostrom's site with larger photo resolution and better photography. The poster was used for the back cover of the Spring 2009 edition of the Bulletin of Primitive Technology No. 37. There's also a short article, about the project, on page 80.
