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!

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 Much later, when flint had been replaced by metal tools, flint nod...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

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.
*Reupload* The long awaited Urbex Productions Easter Special. To mark the occasion of Easter Sunday, I ventured alone into a series of 18th century flint mines that once sprawled underneath the the historical Somerset town of Chard.

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.
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.
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.
The Neolithic mines in Spiennes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site The network of mines at Spiennes goes back to about 5,000 BC, a little before the beginning of the present era. The chalk is primarily made up of ancient sea beds, deposits wich date back millions of years. Spiennes is one of the most beautiful archeological sites in Europe, and its sheer size and the excellent state in wich it has been preserved make it one of the most important examples of mining sites from the Neolithic Age
Just a neat little lucrative area of goodies.

A tour of the now-defunct copper and tin mines of Cornwall in south-western England. Such a beautiful part of the country, and hard to believe that this place was once a powerhouse of world industry!

The Wieliczka salt mines are located just outside the city of Krakow, and were hugely important to Poland's economy over the centuries. The valuable salt extracted here went straight into the royal treasury, where it was used to fund infrastructure projects and foreign wars. These days, the mines are still used to extract salt, but they're also a very popular tourist attraction, featuring some fantastic underground chambers, galleries, and sculptures made entirely out of salt!

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
