Abstract

The study of lithic raw material procurement can contribute to the study of ancient networks. Petrographic analysis combined with systematic mapping of raw material outcrops has been conducted in Moravia and adjacent territories by A. Přichystal over a period of more than three decades. Combined with well excavated (including wet-screening) and 14C (radiometric) dated sites,allows us to study changes in the distribution networks of raw materials during the Mesolithic and Neolithic periods.
