5. Material culture and use of resources

Artefacts constitute the most abundant source of information about the way in which people lived their lives and expressed their identities and beliefs during the Neolithic. Here, the material is dealt with by broad material categories – ceramics (Section 5.1), stone (Section 5.2) and organics (Section 5.3). Because stone and organic remains tend to be approached by different specialists, in different ways, these two sections are further subdivided, as explained in the section introductions.

5.1 Ceramics

5.2 Stone
