Abstract:

"This volume ... considers the variety of timber monuments built during the Neolithic period in Scotland. Recorded as cropmarks on aerial photographs or as chance discoveries during excavations, most are found in eastern lowland Scotland, though there are hints of a wider distribution. Dating suggests two episodes of timber monument building, with a division occurring around 3300 cal. BC, reflected in the construction of new forms of timber monument as well as the way in which they were treated ..., [which] likely reflect different ways of conceptualising and using timber monuments as well as changing values, meanings and ideals, reflecting wider social changes obvious within the archaeological record ... [and] informing us about some of the concerns, values and relationships of Neolithic communities. Ultimately, timber monuments were important spaces and places that were used by Neolithic communities for many different purposes."--Abstract, page ix.
