Ancientpoint - Online Antiquities Museum

Post by skalla on Thu Jul 04, 2013 10:25 pm

I just came across this site which does exactly what it says on the tin... the link is to their stone age section but there more besides that..... lots of cool stone tools etc, and plenty of inspiration for primitive crafts in general.

Lots of British stuff from Dorset, I wonder if Andy is responsible?

Hmm the Dorset stuff looks iffy, I know if you find any flint in Dorset it's most likely worked, but hmmm... And the dating is crazy, what classification book are "they" looking at?

Also some of the Dorset tools are on sale on Ebay for 99p.

Sorry, you are quite right. I'll have to reassess what I know about lithics and pick up random bits of flint to sell on Ebay for 99p, there are thousands in the closest field to me...Laughing

You'll just love this channel then,



It really is worth checking out the whole channel. Most museums would die to have inventory like this.

WOW! They really are just random lumps of flint, has this guy never seen natural fracture and plough damage to nudules before?
I do like a horned grip...
Must check out the rest of the channel if I want to shout at youtube soon.
