Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

Throughout Europe, Asia, Polynesia, in fact in almost all parts of the world where their use had been forgotten, flint arrowheads and axes turned up by the farmer's plow are considered to have fallen from the sky, are often thought to be thunderbolts and are called "Thunderstones".

It was not until travelers returned from far places where these implements were in actual use that their origin was known. Even then these travelers' tales received little popular credence.
