The biographies of flint objects reveal their various and changing roles in prehistoric life. Using raw material sourcing, technological analysis, experimental archaeology, microwear and residue studies the author tells the story of flint from the Early Neolithic to its virtual demise in the Late Bronze and Early Iron Age, incorporating data from settlements, burials and hoards from the region of the present-day Netherlands. This richly illustrated book shows the way flint functioned in daily life, how simple domestic tools became ritualized, how flint was used to negotiate change and how the biography of flint objects was related to personhood.

About the Author:

Annelou van Gijn is professor of Material Culture and Artefact Studies at the Universities of Leiden and Groningen. She is particularly interested in the cultural biography of artefacts, especially of stone and bone tools, as well as ornaments, and uses microscopy to study traces of manufacture and use. She is the author of books and numerous articles on the Neolithic of the Netherlands, lithic studies and microwear analysis.

Review:

Annelou Van Gijn’s aptly titled Flint in Focus is a well-illustrated and precise introduction to the many dimensions of flint. It also, however, provides an in-depth look at the functions of flint for those who are more familiar with the stone. Sidestone Press is a dedicated academic and scientific publisher and as such has tailored their layout and presentation to archaeological publications, making this a pleasant and aesthetic read.' (Justin Pargeter South African Archaeological Bulletin, Vol. 66, No. 193, 2011)
