Flint Story book
Locked within a mineral often overlooked due to its ordinariness is a fascinating tale of shallow, tropical Cretaceous seas, thick sediments of calcite skeletons, fossilised, burrowing sea creatures and massive continental uplift of chalk and limestone, a genesis that resulted in a material absolutely essential to human evolution from the earliest times.
A comprehensive guide to archaeological sites and museums, maps, a timeline and a list of online resources are provided to inspire and assist your own exploration of flint's coexistence with human endeavour.
