EEN MOGELIJKE PRIMAIRE VUURSTEENBEWERKINGSPLAATS UIT EMMEN (DR.)
In this article a small concentration of flint artefacts from Emmen (province of Drenthe) in the northern Netherlands is described. The site is small and the assemblage comprises no more than 193 artefacts, ofwhich more than 50 percent are smaller than 1.5 cm (chips). Only one informal tool, a marginally retouched blade, was found. The presence of a few blades and blade fragments seems to indicate a Mesolithic age, although this cannot be substantiated. On the basis of its size, content and several other characteristics it is suggested that the assemblage represents a location where flint nodules (of poor quality) were collected and tesled and where primary flaking was carried out. The site is quite similar to another such location at Uffelte, also in the province of Drenthe, and is significantly different from 'normal' sites.
