Implement petrology has a long history in the British Isles, extending back to the 1930s. Today, working alongside our colleagues in the South-Western Implement Petrology Group. We are a subject-specialist network of archaeologists, petrologists and geologists, lithicists, and Museum Curators aiming to understand the chaînes opératoires of Neolithic, and the Chalcolithic, to Bronze Age lithic raw material use and stone implements in the British Isles.
The IPG is a voluntary organisation with a long and illustrious past and a future in which we shall strive to share our enthusiasm and knowledge with all who are interested.
