Imagining Calabria - A GIS approach to Neolithic landscapes: PhD thesis, University of Southampton (2003)

D Van Hove
A Ph.D thesis submitted to the University of Southampton in which synchronic and diachronic GIS approaches are used to reinterpret Neolithic land use in southern Calabria, Italy. Paying close attention to the environmental and biological requirements within economic strategies shows that Neolithic land use to be much less agriculturally determined than traditionally assumed.

A Re-examination of Sheep Bone Density and its Role in Assessing Taphonomic Histories of Zooarchaeological Assemblages: PhD Thesis, University College London (2002)

Robert Symmons
A PhD Thesis submitted to University College London. Destructive taphonomic processes can preferentially remove certain bones from the archaeological record thereby introducing bias into element frequencies. Bone density is the major factor in destructive taphonomic processes hence a knowledge of a bone's density can therefore be used to assess the likelihood that it will survive. Using photodensitometry the author has produced density data for 95 well-provenanced modern sheep skeletons and shows that bone density is...

The idea of residence in the Neolithic Cotswolds: PhD thesis, University of Sheffield (2002)

N Snashall
A Ph.D theseis submitted to the University of Sheffield which is an investigation of the idea of residence in the British Neolithic carried out at a regional level. Using lithic assemblages in combination with other sources of monumental and topographical information the choices made in different periods within the individual monumental and topographical areas is analysed. An attempt is made to draw out the contrasts and continuities in residential practices in the region as a...

Roman Villas in the North of England

Martin Burroughs
'Roman Villas in the North of England' was the product of an undergraduate dissertation submitted to the University of Manchester in August 2001 entitled 'Villas of the Brigantes and Parisi: Criteria for Site Location' by Martin Burroughs.

The text of the thesis and the gazeteer are available for download from...

First Farmers Project

University Of Stirling
The First Farmers Project investigated Neolithic settlement in east-central Scotland. Excavations were caried out at six locations in east-central Scotland: Ballendrick, Claish Farm, Duncrub, Mountstewart, Nethermuir and Upper Gothens. These spots were chosen because of the presence of lithic scatters to determine whether these were indications of early human activity rather than simply isolated artefacts. There are a series of reports resulting from these investigations and further reports, database files and images are available for...

Visual Repertoire, Focusing Activity and the 'Value of Heritage': Using the 'mental library of views' to evoke local place-identity, Britain and Europe: PhD Thesis, Lancaster University (2002)

Jonathan Kenny
Visual Repertoire, Focusing Activity and the 'Value of Heritage' investigates people's understanding of 'heritage' buildings and structures in the landscape and the part these structures play in defining a sense of identity. It is suggested that 'heritage' has multiple meaning and multiple natures and can remain constant as a nationalist flag in the landscape, or remain unnoticed and banal for years but become contested and politicised at the slightest change in social context. This resource...

Advanced computer modelling of hominin dispersal from Africa: integrating archaeological and palaeoclimatic simulations

Paul Valdes, Steven Mithen, Bruce Sellwood, Sam Smith, Alan Haywood & John Hughes
The project aim was to develop process-based computer simulations of the dispersal of Homo erectus out of Africa. This involved developing realistic constraints on the patterns of vegetation and the effects of changes in global sea level. It was assumed that this migration out of Africa could be investigated through the paradigm of a single migration event, starting around 2 millions of years ago and arriving in Dmanisi around 1.8 millions of years ago. The...
