    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 Much later, when flint had been replaced by metal tools, flint nod...

  • Prehistoric Flint Mining - Derek goes mining

    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.

Stone and flint led to copper, then bronze, gold, silver, iron… all in the name of progress, war, technology, vanity or greed.

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.

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 nodules were in demand for other uses, such as for building and as strikers for muskets. In order to remove the chalk efficiently, the ancient miners built wooden platforms and ladders as they dug downwards and piled the spoil around the shaft opening using turf revetments to hold it in place for the season, when the shaft and all its galleries were thoroughly and fastidiously backfilled to promote stability. The landscape around Grime's Graves has a characteristic pockmarked appearance caused by the infilled shafts. This is probably what inspired the later Anglo-Saxon inhabitants of the area to name it after their god Grim (literally the masked, or hooded one, a euphemism for Woden). Although the pagan Anglo-Saxons seem to have had some idea of what the site was, as the name of the site means literally 'The masked one's quarries,' (or Grim's Graben,) it wasn't until Canon William Greenwell excavated one of the shafts from 1868- 1870 that their purpose was discovered in modern times. Other similar sites have been found in Europe like Cissbury in the United Kingdom, Krzemionki in Poland and Spiennes in Belgium. Tools[edit] Deer antler pick The miners used picks fashioned from the antler of red deer. They probably used wooden shovels, although this is only inferred by analogy with other flint mines with better conditions for the preservation of artefacts. Analysis of the antlers (Clutton-Brock 1984: 25) has shown that the miners were mainly right-handed and favoured the left antlers out of those that were naturally shed seasonally by the deer. The 28 pits excavated up to 2008 yielded an average of 142.5 antler picks each, of which an average of 14.8 have been found to be left-handed. Once they had reached the floorstone flint, the miners dug lateral galleries outwards from the bottom, following the flint seam. The medium-depth shafts yielded as much as 60 tons of flint nodules, which were brought to the surface and roughly worked into shape on site. The blank tools were then possibly traded elsewhere for final polishing. It is estimated that 60 tons of flint could have produced as many as 10,000 of the polished stone axes, which were the mines' main product. Extrapolation across the site suggests that Grime's Graves may have produced around 16-18,000 tonnes of flint across the 433 shafts recorded to date. However, there are large areas of the site covered by later activity which are believed to conceal many more mineshafts. There were other hard stones used for axe manufacture, those of the Langdale axe industry and Penmaenmawr in North Wales being traded across Europe, as well as other less well-known igneous and metamorphic rocks. The axes were much in demand for forest clearance and settlement, development of farmland for arable crops and raising animals, which characterises the Neolithic period.

Prehistoric banded flint mines were discovered on the northeast margin of the Świętokrzyskie Mountains nearly a hundred years ago. Since then, they have been attracting the attention of several generations of Polish archaeologists. A special place in these studies was taken by a large and well-preserved mining field “Krzemionki”. Intensive research on prehistoric banded flints exploitation conducted in the last quarter of the twentieth century was summarized during the VIIth International Flint Symposium. In recent years, one has returned to the research of flint mining using new technical possibilities. Geological survey showed the location of many kilometres of outcrops of banded flint in the southwest margin of the Świętokrzyskie Mountains. However, there is no evidence of its use in prehistoric times. Survey also located sporadic occurrences of secondary accumulations of banded flint in glacial deposits in southern Poland (near Cracow). Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS) make it possible to analyze in great detail the entire course of banded flint outcrops from the NE margin of the Świętokrzyskie Mountains. This resulted in the discovery of yet another prehistoric point of exploitation. Also allowed to create detailed maps of all known prehistoric mining sites. These plans revealed a previously unknown method of exploitation and also changed our ideas about the size and state of preservation of most sites. Verification surface survey of prehistoric banded flint mines resulted in the discovery of materials that show in new light the problem of access to resources and how they were used in the final Neolithic and Bronze Age.

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.

We visit the neolithic mines in Norfolk, Grime's Graves. The 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. We also descend by ladder into one of the excavated shafts to see the jet-black flint. Set amid the distinctive Breckland heath landscape, Grime’s Graves is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a habitat for rare plants and fauna. **PLEASE LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE!!!** Twitter: @Dis_DeeHazel Instagram: Dis_DeeHazel

Website: https://www.goldrushexpeditions.com/ Mining Claims for Sale: https://www.goldrushexpeditions.com/s... Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GoldRushExpe... 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.
