This collection examines what we can say about how people lived in the Neolithic and early Bronze Age of mainland Scotland where much of the evidence we have lies in the plough-zone, or survives as slumped banks and filled ditches, or simply appears as ruinous megaliths. It draws together leading experts and young researchers to present fresh research and outlines radical new interpretations of the pits, postholes, ditches, rubbish dumps, human remains and broken potsherds left behind by our Neolithic forebears.

"As well as showcasing the wealth of information recently obtained from developer-funded excavations, aerial survey, and radiocarbon dating, the book highlights the many questions that remain to be answered - and underlines the huge contribution made by Gordon Barclay in framing and addressing those questions in his own work." -- Alison Sheridan, Current Archaeology
"The editors have succeeded in providing a sound platform for consideration of the archaeological evidence. Many valuable approaches are presented, as well as tangible strategies for future work to uncover and give voice to a hitherto under-explored region." -- Jessica Smyth, Antiquity
