An Ethnography of the Neolithic provides a provocative and novel reconstruction of society in Scandinavia over a period of 3, 000 years. Christopher Tilley integrates a wide range of evidence, from prehistoric landscapes to the symbolic significance of axes and pots, to recreate in an accessible way the lives of the final hunter-gatherer-fishers and first farmers in Sweden and Denmark. His skillful fusion of archaeological evidence and new anthropological approaches makes this book an original contribution to a widely debated topic.West Jutland Danish islands Scania Blekinge Smaland Oland VastergOtland South Norway Figure 2.10 Generalized pollen diagram illustrating human influence on the vegetation from the Neolithic to the Viking period in eight areas ofanbsp;...
