Journal of Neolithic Archaeology 2010: Megaliths and Identities

Papers delivered at the third European Megalithic Studies Group Meeting 13th - 15th of May 2010 at Kiel University, Germany edited by Martin Furholt, Friedrich Lüth, Johannes Müller and Chris Scarre


 The third European Megalithic Studies Group Meeting was held in 2010 at Kiel University. It was co-organised by the DFG Priority Program 1400, the Römisch-Germanische Kommission of Frankfurt/Main, the Graduate School “Human Development in Landscapes” and the Institute of Pre- and Protohistoric Archaeology at Kiel, and the University of Durham. 


 27 papers on the topic “Megaliths and Identities” were presented to an international audience and were considered and discussed by archaeologists working on the megalithic monuments of Western, Northern and Southern Europe. These discussions clearly revealed the different approaches and concepts that derive from specific national, regional and institutional traditions, research environments and recent developments.


 To continue this vivid dialogue and to enhance the impact of the Megalithic Studies Group the majority of the papers given at the meeting will be published in stages here on www.jungsteinsite.de within this special section.
