The importance of flint to prehistoric people, and to archaeologists studying those people, cannot be underestimated. This durable and easily-workable material was fashioned into a multitude of essential tools which reveal much about man's exploitation of the environment and natural resources, his diet, his trading with flint-rich cultures and his behaviour. This well-illustrated and accesible study aims to present a practical guide to worked flint for students, archaeologists and general readers alike. Focusing on the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic periods in turn, Chris Butler discusses and illustrates the types of tool that were made, the ways in which they were made, their use and how the archaeologist or anyone can recognise and date certain types of tool. All technical terms are clearly explained and illustrated in diagrams while colour photographs demonstrate the rich variety of tools and flint that can be found. Includes a glossary and a full list of further reading.
