Excavations at Grimes Graves, Norfolk, 1972-1976, Paperback / softback Book

Excavations at Grimes Graves, Norfolk, 1972-1976 Paperback / softback


This is last in a series of fascicules publishing the British Museum's programme of research excavations at Grimes Graves, Norfolk.

Research into flint mines such as Grimes Graves, one of the largest Neolithic flint mine complexes in Europe, offers a fascinating glimpse into the practical knowledge and skills of humans at that time.

This fascicule considers the miners' methods as well as their motivation and the uses to which the finished products were put.

Ian Longworth was formerly Keeper of Prehistoric and Romano-British Antiquities at the British Museum, Gillian Varndell is a curator of Prehistory and Europe at the British Museum and Jacek Lech has a professorship at the Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw.
