In the far north of the British isles, the islands of Orkney have a wealth of well-preserved monuments. They have inspired this volume of essays by internationl scholars, who offer new ideas about life and death, monuments and landscapes, not just in Orkney but also in the rest of Britain and Europe. From Ireland to Eastern Europe and north to scandinavia, an inter-relating pattern of social practices in the Neolithic can be traced through archaeological excavations and close observation of upstanding monuments.
