dc.description.abstractThe research reported upon had one aim: to create a modern account ofthe inception and development of farming in lowland east-central Scotland (defined as the old local authority Regions ofTayside and Fife, and the adjacent parts ofthe Regions of Central and Grampian), taking particular account of potential inter-regional differences, and in a coherent national interpretative context.en
dc.description.abstractThere are seven specific objectives:en
dc.description.abstract1. to reveal and explore the extent and diversity of the remains of Neolithic occupation in the area, in part through creating corpora of site typesen
dc.description.abstract2. to document and explain the long histories of use and change on Neolithic/early Bronze Age ceremonial/burial sites.en
dc.description.abstract3. to set the rich ceremonial/burial evidence into a more rounded settlement and environmental contexten
dc.description.abstract4. to assess the evidence for, and establish the extent and nature of inter-regional variation throughout the Neolithicen
dc.description.abstract5. to place the development of locally appropriate explanatory models in the history of archaeological thoughten
dc.description.abstract6. to set the study of the archaeology of lowland Scotland in a wider historical/cultural contexten
dc.description.abstract7. to identify and quantify the threats to the survival of the Neolithic archaeological resourceen
dc.description.abstractThe research was undertaken through the gathering of new information in the field, reinterpreting the results of older fieldwork in the light of more recent understanding, and through survey of relevant archaeological, historical and political literature.en
