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.

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.

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.

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 Much later, when flint had been replaced by metal tools, flint nod...
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.
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.
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...
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 pr...
Ancient mining techniques go well back into our history – well back into ourprehistory, in fact. As we progressed through the Stone Age, with more and more sophisticated tools and weapons being designed and developed, so too,our need for more and better raw materials for these implements. Stone and flint led to copper, then bronze, gold, silver, iron… all in the name of progress, war, technology, vanity or greed. In fact, it’s ironic (pun intended) that the substance prized and even mined by our ancient ancestors for some of the earliest stone tools and weapons – flint – was later a hindrance encountered by Classical miners – who were in many cases also Classical minors – in gold mining galleries described by Pliny the Elder in the 1st century AD as “thought to be the hardest thing that ex...
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

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.
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.
