Drawing on archaeological evidence, Magdalena Midgley explores the cultural and social shifts from the late Mesolithic hunter-gatherers to early farming communities. Emphasizing the importance of ceremonial and monumental landscapes as points of social interaction and the focus of beliefs, she examines the location, construction, internal arrangement, graves and burials, grave goods, human remains, and ritual treatment of the deceased.
