A place where the raw material for making stone axes was quarried and roughed out. Archaeologically such sites are represented by the remains of quarry pits, adits, and boulder reduction areas, together with abundant waste flakes and part‐made broken implements. Several examples have been excavated in northwest Europe, including Langdale, England, and Plussulien, France.
