This series of six lectures will offer a comprehensive view of our current state of knowledge about Scotland’s Neolithic (c. 4000–c. 2500 BC). From DNA to coprolite research, and from Alpine jadeitite axeheads to lidar surveying, the many and diverse strands of evidence will be synthesized in an attempt to present a big picture and to tease out regional and chronological variation in the way Scotland’s early farming communities lived their lives and made sense of the world.

Friday 24 April:
Lecture 1 @ 6.00 pm followed by a wine reception

Saturday 25 April:
Lecture 2 @ 11.00 am
Lecture 3 @ 2.00 pm
