In this volume a group of distinguished prehistorians present the latest work on the Neolithic of the north and west of Britain and Ireland, areas with some of the most impressive monuments and material culture in north-west Europe. The contents are presented in four sections: funerary studies; megalithic art; artefact studies; and regional studies. Traditional scholarly presentations are combined with contemporary theoretical approaches and methodological discussion. A substantial quantity of hitherto unpublished material is incorporated. The papers serve to transform our understanding of the Neolithic of these areas, and are guaranteed to stimulate lively discussion.
