Högberg, Anders LU ; Hughes, Richard E. and Olausson, Deborah LU (2014) In Siedlungs- und Küstenforschung im Südlichen Nordseegebiet 37.
Abstract
This study presents the results of an initial chemical provenience analysis of black and red Heligoland flint

and discusses these results in relation to a previously conducted chemical analysis of a large number of samples of Scandinavian flint. The results show that it is possible to distinguish red and black Heligoland flint from Scandinavian
