Ancient flint mines documentary
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.

Just a neat little lucrative area of goodies.
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 Much later, when flint had been replaced by metal tools, flint nod...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.
My explore of the historic ancient lead mine known as Rampgill in Nenthead, Cumbria, United Kingdom. The vein may have been worked from 1690!!. We look at the brewery shaft, the horse gin and scaleburn mines.

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.
As seen on SkyEye Britain - LAUNCHING IN EARLY 2013! - www.skyeye-app.com This is the site of a Neolithic flint mine, which may well go back to 3000 BC. It was named Grim's Graben much later by the Saxons, after their god Grim, and 'graben', meaning quarries. It is possible to climb down one of the shafts, and is the only one of its kind open to the public in the UK.
Hidden deep within the majestic Santa Catalina Mountains, north of Tucson, Arizona are ancient ruins that may be linked to the legends of the mine with the iron door and the lost city. The site is near the Cañada del Oro in an extremely remote area of the Catalina Mountains. Find out more at http://emol.org/treasurescatalinas . The remains of nearly a half dozen stone constructed buildings are scattered in an area that is suspected to be connected with the famous legend of the Iron Door Mine. Nearby, extensive mining activities have been conducted for hundreds of years. Evidence of mining shafts, tunnels and early human activity have been founded and documented. The U.S. Forest Service retains these items. The legend tied to the lost city, and the nearby mines involves the Spanish missiona...
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
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.

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.
