UISPP Commission on Flint Mining in Pre- and Protohistoric Times

7th International Conference

201609_Mons_UISPP_Mining_QuarryingThe aim of the commission is to favour cooperation in the area of archaeological research upon siliceous rock mining (flint, chert, hornstone, radiolarite, jasper...), presenting and discussing methods and results. Some of the foremost fields of interest will embrace, among others: research upon different stages of “chaînes opératoires” of manufacture, specialisation of labour and circulation of raw  materials, characterisation of raw material as well as investigation on flint mining sites belonging to Pre- and Protohistoric settlement networks. The objective of the commission will be to promote those lines of research upon flint mining and its methods which will allow a better understanding of various phenomena and processes taking place in Pre- and Protohistoric times.


The international conference will also draw attention on this outstanding heritage and on its protection.
