Many Different Types of Scandinavian Flint - Visual Classification and Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence

Högberg, Anders LU ; Olausson, Deborah LU and Hughes, Richard (2012) In Fornvännen 107. p.225-240
Abstract
Proceeding from previously published studies of the provenance of southern Scandinavian flint based on visual classification and chemical sourcing, this paper presents a comprehensive study of flint provenancing.Existing knowledge of the appearance and geological origin of flint types is discussed and reappraised, and new
chemical analyses of flint from 25 localities are presented. The results show that although there are certain problems in identifying the provenance of south Scandinavian flint using geochemical and visual criteria, inmost cases these problems can be overcome. The study ends with a discussion of how the results of the study can
be appliedmore broadly in future archaeological research.
