Abstract

In Europe obsidian is a very rare material, in comparison with other sectors of Earth, such as, for example, the adjacent Near East. In Western Europe obsidian workable by prehistoric men was recognised only in four volcanic complexes, located in the IIalian islands of Sardinia, Palmarola, Lipari and Pantelleria. Exploitation of all these source areas for tool making is well documented.
