Knapping a British Dagger (Pathways of the Past)


A "long-tanged" British Beaker of the class 2 type, distributed across of England and Wales.  

According to the video, the source of the British dagger flint has never been found, and it made me think of the industry at Sussex, see proceeding post.  Quite a few of these daggers have traces of chalk remaining on them, which suggests that these items were probably knapped by a specialist and then traded across the island.
