Abstract

In Neolithic and Chalcolithic Europe, large flint and obsidian blades stood out from most of the contemporary lithic productions. In some cases these might be a few exceptional blades produced on the fringes of normal debitage by mobile knappers, whilst in others they might represent large-scale production on dedicated sites. Either way, the large blades are distinctive by their size and more broadly by the technical investment they display. Their very uneven distribution across Europe – from Bulgaria to Portugal and from Italy to Denmark – is surprising and inevitably raises the question of the appearance of these exceptional blades: local, autonomous development and/ or technical transmission from another part of Europe?
