Flint was vital for prehistoric societies, from the Mesolithic hunter-gatherers down to Bronze Age farmers. Chris Butler describes how the different diagnostic flint implements were used in each period and how they were produced. The author further explores what the analysis of flintwork can tell us about early man's use of the landscape, such as how and where flint was obtained; settlement, manufacturing, and ritual sites; and the eventual decline in the importance of flint. The book is the fruit of 20 years' research into flint assemblages.
