Mines de Spiennes

 

«Spiennes is a Walloon village in the municipality of Mons, Belgium. It is well known for its neolithic flint mines, which are on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The entry on the list describes them as "the largest and earliest concentration of ancient mines in Europe" and cites the level of human technological development they demonstrate as justification for their inclusion.»
