Grime’s Graves were the first Neolithic flint mines to be recognised as such in England. The shallow depressions – over 400 in all – that created such a mysterious, lunar-like landscape, represent the infilled shafts and pits of these mines, which were dug about 5,000 years ago. Here, prehistoric miners dug deep beneath the ground to extract the fine quality, jet-black flint from which they fashioned tools, weapons and ceremonial objects. Visitors today can descend one of the shafts to see the radiating galleries in which the miners worked.
This guidebook provides a tour of this extraordinary site and explains the history of the mines and the uses of flint from the Neolithic Age to the present day.
