Ok, hopefully you have come across of hollow flints(paramoudras), how about flint circles and giant flint backbones? Try this: http://www.geulogy.com/introdis-beestonbump.html

Interesting site.

Saw this one a while back. Flint Circles can be made by man too. This one apparently sold for a small fortune, so I guess makes the pile of flint in my garden a work of art.

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. cats look down on us but pigs treat us as equals.

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out

That pile of flint nodules and debris that a knapper lives with is a work of art, along with the blood, sweat and pain.

Thinking if I make a circle out of a pile of debitage, perhaps they'd put it in the Tate too.

I should be rich - my kids love making stone piles - I have seen the flint with holes in while metal detecting on some fields in Oxfordshire.
