A report on fieldwork which aimed to determine the nature and extent of prehistoric stone working around the headland at Beer, and to establish whether exploitation reflected factors such as the efficient use of raw materials, or the desire to produce specific artefact-types. The size of the area in which chalk flint was easily accessible meant that some evidence of controlled access might be found; finally evidence from other sites was considered, in order to measure the importance of Beer to prehistoric communities of the south-west peninsular.
