The subtitle of this volume aptly describes the contents and scope of this collection of papers from a conference held at Sligo in 2002 in honour of the late Professor Michael J O'Kelly. Arranged according to the session titles - chronology and origins, subsistence, and landscapes, artefacts, bones and burial contexts - the contributors present material and discussion from a range of case studies including: Ireland's passage tombs; megaliths in Portugal; Newgrange; shell middens and megaliths in Cantabrian Spain; the exploitation of freshwater food resources in central Europe; osteological finds from Falbygden, Sweden. Abstracts to papers not submitted to the conference proceedings and posters are given at the back. Colour illustrations and all abstracts are included on a CD-Rom.
