Abstract:

The article presents the Late Bronze Age flint assemblage from Hammerstadt 06 (HAS-06) – site situated in an open-pit mine Reichwalde (Tagebau Reichwalde) in Saxony, Germany. The material constitutes a good basis for comparison with Hallstatt flint assemblages known from Poland so it was compared with a little smaller collection from the remains of a stronghold from Lusatian culture in Wicina in Poland, situated ca. 40 km to the north-east from Reichwalde. Both sites are placed into a broader context of European Late Bronze Age flint knapping phenomenon
