    Flints in iron age graves: flint from the cemetery at Weklice, Elblag County, Elblag District, Northern Poland

    In the Bronze Age, flint was still being used throughout Europe. In the early periods of this age, in many areas, it continued to play an important role in the economy, as evidenced by the numerous flint mines in use at the time as well as flint tools. In the Late Bronze and Early Iron Ages, flint still had an important place in the economies of communities living in East Central Europe. At the same time, an analysis of late flint industries suggests that some of them had no utilitarian significance. The presents of flint, in particular skeleton graves from the cemetery at Weklice (the cemetery was used by communities of the Wielbark Culture during the Roman Period) open new possibilities to discuss of its meaning.
