What was life like in Scotland between 4000 and 2000 BC? Where were people living? How did they treat their dead? Why did they spend so much time building extravagant ritual monuments? What was special about the relationship people had with trees and holes in the ground? What can we say about how people lived in the Neolithic and early Bronze Age of mainland Scotland where much of the evidence we have lies beneath the ploughsoil, or survives as slumped banks and ditches, or ruinous megaliths? Each contribution to this volume presents fresh research and radical new interpretations of the pits, postholes, ditches, rubbish clumps, human remains and broken potsherds left behind by our Neolithic forebears.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"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
