The Neolithic flint mines at Spiennes, covering more than 100 ha, are the largest and earliest concentration of ancient mines in Europe. They are also remarkable for the diversity of technological solutions used for extraction and for the fact that they are directly linked to a settlement of the same period.

Ancient flint mines documentary
A tour of the neolithic flint mines near the southern Belgian town of Spiennes. For a thousand years, starting around 4600 BC, neolithic humans dug deep mine shafts here to mine flint, using only bones, antlers and flint axes. Going down into the mines was a real thrill!

I am again with the Osmo DJI camera filming another POV walk. Sit back and let me take the strain as I climb the steep hills at Cissbury, near Worthing, West Sussex as I search for the neolithic flint mines and the wild horses that graze there.

This Dam is situated on Stirling Hill near the Village of Boddam Aberdeenshire Scotland, it was built for the Local Granite Polishing works near by, the Dam called the Den Dam is no longer in use but has been used for the Traditional Boddam Boaties model sailboat races for over 150yrs. The Dam sits on a very Important Historical Ancient Flint Mine site.
HISTORY: ............... Grime’s Graves is the only Neolithic flint mine open to visitors in Britain. This grassy lunar landscape of 400 pits was first named Grim’s Graves by the Anglo-Saxons. It was not until one of them was excavated in 1870 that they were identified as flint mines dug over 5,000 years ago. Grime's Graves is a large Neolithic flint mining complex in Norfolk, England. It lies 8 km (5.0 mi) north east from Brandon, Suffolk in the East of England. It was worked between c. 3000 and c. 1900 BC, although production may have continued well into the Bronze and Iron Ages (and later) owing to the low cost of flint compared with metals. Flint was much in demand for making polished stone axes in the Neolithic period. Much later, when flint had been replaced by metal tools, flint nod...
Grime’s Graves is the only Neolithic flint mine open to visitors in Britain. This grassy lunar landscape of 400 pits was first named Grim’s Graves by the Anglo-Saxons. It was not until one of them was excavated in 1870 that they were identified as flint mines dug over 5,000 years ago. A small exhibition area illustrates the history of this fascinating site. Visitors can descend 9 metres (30 ft) by ladder into one excavated shaft to see the jet-black flint.
Creating the storyboard, modeling lighting texturing, animating environment and props in order to create a video for the Spiennes Neolithic flint mines Museum (Unesco site). Performed extensive research, including site visits and consulted with leading experts to ensure a high degree of scientific accuracy and an animation sequence both educational and entertaining.
Neolithic flint mine to open to public for the first time A Neolithic flint mine has been made accessible to the public for the first time. One of only 10 known flint mines in the United Kingdom, Grime's Graves, near Thetford, in Norfolk, is the only one to allow access. ---------------------------------------------------------- SUBcribe https://goo.gl/IfvaED HELP ME 100.000 SUBCRIBE TKS Make America Great Again.

c 2600BC, Near Brandon, Norflok, England. Neolithic miners go underground to get more flint. The miners go deep under ground to find flint, building platforms as they go downwards. Once at the floorstone flint, the miners dug tunnels outwards from the bottom, following the flint seam. The medium-depth shafts yielded as much as 60 tons of flint nodules. These were brought to the surface and roughly worked into shape on site. The blank tools were then possibly traded elsewhere for final polishing.
Just a neat little lucrative area of goodies.

National Bureau of Mines: http://www.nationalbureauofmines.org/ Gold Flint is located 14 miles outside of Butte, Montana, in a secluded area that doesn't get much traffic. The Gold Flint has roughly 500′ of workings. The owner bought the mine just last year from Gold Rush Expeditions and he visited the claim several times this past summer to explore the mine and do some sampling. He found some good gold values in this mine, but time constraints ultimately lead to his decision to sell it. The floor of the mine is full of material that can be panned. The owner took four samples from the floor of the mine, all of which showed gold.
Visit www.myspace.com/irondoormine for more info!!! The history of the Iron Door Mine treasure, believed to be in the Catalina Mountains north of Tucson, AZ- is unique. This video follows Flint through some of the last territory untouched by developers between The Biosphere and Saddlebrooke. It displays his attempts to save and preserve the rich history of the area. This sight is in the process of foreclosure due to lack of support from historical and local funding, and the rise in land prices in that area.

Cissbury Ring is a hill fort on the South Downs, in the borough of Worthing, England, and about 5 kilometers (3 mi) from its town center, in the county of West Sussex. It is the largest hill fort in Sussex, the second largest in England and one of the largest in Europe overall, covering some 60 acres (24 hectares). The earthworks that form the fortifications were built around the beginning of the Middle Iron-Age possibly around 250 BC but abandoned in the period 50 BC - 50 AD. The site of the fort contains a Neolithic mine, one of the first flint mines in Britain. Around 200 shafts were dug into Cissbury hill over around 900 years of use. Shafts were up to 12 metres (39 ft) deep with 7 metres (23 ft) diameters at the surface. Up to eight galleries extended outwards from the bottoms ...
Idrija in western Slovenia is the site of the world's second-largest mercury mine, where for 500 years mercury was mined. The mines are no longer active due to mercury's dangerous and toxic nature, but the legacy of mining lives on. Come with me as I explore the town and the underground mines!
