Abstract

The enclosed pit circle at Monkton Up Wimborne in Dorset, situated within the complex of Neolithic monuments in the Upper Allen Valley, was excavated by Martin Green in 1997 (Green 2000, 2007). Although not directly related to the extraction of stone, a careful examination of this unusual monument and its landscape context has the potential to tell us much about how the acquisition of flint fitted into wider social relations that Neolithic people may have had with the underworld.
