Abstract
Between the Mesozoic-Cenozoic Paris Basin rich of silicified rocks, limestones and sandstones, and the Eifel region providing volcanic rocks, the Paleozoic massif of the Ardennes has been exploited for quern and millstone manufacturing from the Neolithic to the Modern Era. For some years, a French-Belgian team of archaeologists and geologists is investigating the production, distribution and utilization of this underestimated group of archaeological objects. The recent development of preventive archaeology generates large volumes of data from qualitative archaeological contexts that can provide new insights in the socio-economic organization of past societies. From a petrographical point of view, the determination of the geomaterials drives to the identification of their geological and geographical origins. Additionally, indices of abandoned quern and millstone quarry locations are provided by the collection and analysis of historical and archaeological observations. The mapping of the geological and geographical provenances and the multiple consumption sites on which the grinding implements occur, give us an idea of the ancient distribution networks and of the potential factors that govern it.
