Grimes Graves Norfolk flint mines

Grimes Graves Norfolk flint mines

Grimes Graves Norfolk are ancient flint mines and flint mining complex at Brandon, Thetford, Norfolk. The Grimes Graves flint was so special that ancient man dug large and deep mine shafts into the large chalk hill or mound where this most unique of flints was found.

Why is this large chalk hill found in this precise location with virtually no chalk surrounding it?

Why is the Grimes Graves flint in 3 layers or seams? Are the flint seams and there nodules created in a similar manner to other nodules? The flint had to be very special to dig so far down to get to the special Grimes Graves floorstone flint seam.

Does the location and geology of the area and Grimes Graves show Electric Universe geology?

It is easy to understand how miners could have followed flint layers into hillsides or underground. But flint does not (and did not) appear at the surface at Grime's Graves.

Grimes Graves geology of the area and the flint mines

The Grimes Graves geology of the area and the flint mines themselves are of special interest. Why is this precise area and small hill of Grimes Graves chalk there? Why is Grimes Graves flint there? Why 3 layers of Grimes Graves flint (topstone flint, wallstone flint and floorstone flint)? Why is Grimes Graves floorstone flint so special that they dug all the way down to get it? How did they know it was there?

The structure of the region’s bedrock geology is relatively simple: the rocks become younger eastwards, and dip gently towards the North Sea basin. By contrast, the superficial geology is notoriously complex, and continues to excite lively discussion among geologists.

Grime's Graves has an interesting geological quirk that serves to demonstrate how well Neolithic geologists had mastered the art of stratigraphy (understanding the three-dimensional relationships of sedimentary rocks).

It is easy to understand how miners could have followed flint layers into hillsides or underground. But flint does not (and did not) appear at the surface at Grime's Graves. By knowing the local geology in detail, the Neolithic miners had to work out the principle that they stood a good chance of digging down to a valuable flint layer that they couldn't see from the surface.

Having thought it out, the geologist then had to persuade his neighbors to invest considerable effort in digging an exploration shaft.... and the rest is history.

The geology at Grimes Graves comprises a number of flint layers lying below sands and clays and interspersed between chalk. It was the upper three seams of flint which were exploited, and the lowest of the three, known as 'floorstone', was generally targeted because it was easily flaked, less flawed than flint from the other layers, and had a lustrous deep black colour.

To get to the flint the Neolithic miners dug shafts up to 12m deep with radiating galleries at their base, as well as shallower pits from 3m to 8m deep. Some mines are grouped together with two or three in a single quarry, implying that some were dug in sequence.

It is suggested that to dig one of the Grimes Graves mine shafts a couple of 1000 tonnes of chalk had to be removed! And the Grimes Graves flint miners dug at least 433 flint mines.

There is a wide range of plant communities, each in close proximity to one another, reflecting differences in management and soil type. Heather heathland is found in the northern part of the site, where it is arranged in a series of parallel stripes which alternate with bands of acidic grassland.

This pattern reflects differences in the composition of the underlying soil which is due to the sorting of the sediment by freeze-thaw during the arctic conditions of the last ice age (the Devensian Glaciation) some 10,000-50,000 years ago. A trench in the north-western part of the heath shows a cross-section through the stripes.

If you consider that the flint was created by electromagnetic energy/fields in the past, that the flint nodules are like fulgurites then they are streams or layers of electrical energy flowing through the land.

The same as diamonds and other precious stones being found in nodules, pockets, areas and seams, usually horizontally.

Or here is a more standard explanation of the amazingly puzzling geology of Norfolk where Grimes Graves are located.

Norfolk geology - horizontal layers

Norfolk geology - horizontal layers

You have the vertical strips of bedrock in Norfolks geology but you also have the horizontal Norfolk geology exposed at the sea cliffs like at Hunstanton Cliffs.


Norfolk geology - horizontal layers at Hunstanton Cliffs

What is amazing is the definition of the layers. There appears to be virtually no gradient, no intermingling, no contamination between layers. Look at how different they are. If you believe in sedimentary deposits then it is as if the world changed literally overnight.

Grimes Graves flints are in 3 very distinct layers, seams of nodules.

The image below from Grimes Graves shows the wallstone flint layer, its as if those nodules in that layer have been changed. Not a precise layer but as if the metamorphic effect has flown through and from each nodule to the next one.

Electrofocusing is the separation of different particles using electro currents and could be a possible Electric Universe explanation for different and very precise horizontal layers in Norfolks geology.





Another variation on the same theme is that by passing high powered electrical currents through the Norfolk material you would create powerful electromagnetic fields and effects that would give you heat, pressure and energy. All the things you need to change or metamorphosis the chalk and minerals into other forms.

Norfolk flint paramoudra, pot stones and Grimes Graves flints

Norfolk flints paramoudra, pot stones and Grimes Graves flints

Norfolks flint paramoudra are amazing to look at and a total puzzle to geologists and scientists. Geologists do not actually know what forms flint. Paramoudra flints look like backbones or flint fulgurites.

What or how the Norfolk flint pot stones and flint circles are formed is a similar mystery. In a Gravity Universe.


Norfolks paramoudra flints - formed in same manner as Grimes Graves flints?



Norfolks paramoudra flint found at Beeston Beach - variations of Grimes Graves flint seams?

Norfolks paramoudra flints have been found going up or down through 10's of meters of Norfolks rock layers, which means millions of years. How is this possible?


Norfolks flints paramoudra columns - vertical versions of Grimes Graves flint layers?

Norfolk flint paramoudra of the vertical kind are found around Beeston Beach but they come in 4 forms - the flint fulgurite version, a round donut shape encircling Beaston Chalk, the hollow massive flint pot stones and the normal flints!


Flint pot stones formed in the same electromagnetic way that Grimes Graves (Thetford) flints were?
