Excavations of a Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age occupation site at L'Erée, Guernsey, Channel Islands.
Antiquity, 83, (321)
The excavation described here forms part of a larger project, directed by the authors, entitled Neolithic land- and seascapes in Guernsey, 5500-2500 BC, which aims to investigate changes in settlement, landscape occupation and environment over the course of three millennia. In doing so, we also hope to situate the impressive and well-known monumental evidence on the island in its broader landscape context and shed light on the initial introduction of Neolithic practices there. This detailed regional study will ultimately make a significant contribution to understandings of the Mesolithic-Neolithic transition in north-western Europe in general, and the mechanisms by which Neolithic practices spread into western France and then across the Channel to Britain in particular (Figure 1).
