Linear k-blocking Sets

We point out the relationship between normal spreads and the linear k-blocking sets introduced in [9]. We give a characterisation of linear k-blocking sets proving that the projections and the embeddings of a PG(kt,q) in are linear k-blocking sets of . Finally, we construct some new examples.
