Early grinding systems in North -Western Europe: A critical review of 15 years of techno-functional research
MetadataShow full item record
The alluvial valleys and loess plateaux of North-Western Europe were first colonised at the end of the 6th millennium BC by agricultural populations from Central Europe. They introduced a number of farming, architectural, craft and food processing techniques. Among their material culture, macrolithic tools played a major role as seen by polishers, symbols of the new technique of polished stone. They also introduced querns, tools essential to process cereals. This study of the Early Neolithic querns in this part of Europe aims to advance the understanding of technical systems and the economy of early Neolithic societies.

The volcanic rock grinding stones from Selinunte, Sicily (Italy): Archaeological evidence and geochemical provenance analyses Schwall, Christoph; Gluhak, Tatjana M. (Universitat de Lleida. Departament d'Història. Secció d'Arqueologia, Prehistòria i Història Antiga, 2019)This study is based on the assemblage of grinding stones from the Greek colony of Selinunte in Sicily. Most were brought to light in well stratified contexts dating to the 6th century BC making them ideal subjects for ...
