Review quote

This volume represents a milestone in neolithic studies; it will not only serve to measure the considerable progress made so far, but also as a critical marker against which future progress will be measured.'--Roger Martlew "Archaeological Journal, 159, 2002 "

About Timothy Darvill

Timothy Darvill is Professor of Archaeology and Director of the Centre for Archaeology and Anthropology at Bournemouth University. His research interests focus on two main themes. The first is the Neolithic of northwest Europe, in particular the early development, use, and meaning of monumental architecture with fieldwork in Germany, Russia, Greece, Malta, England, Wales, and the Isle of Man. Second is archaeological resource management, especially the role of the tangible and intangible heritage as sources of social capital, cultural enrichment, personal well-being, and the social construction of knowledge.
