Abstract

It is well known that Neolithic megalithic landscapes are the result of complex locational logics governing where communities chose to site their funerary monuments. These logics in turn respond to broader environmental and cultural affordances, and the relationship between these has been a major topic in the megalithic archaeological literature for the last few decades.

This presentation will show the current results of our ongoing project “Modelling human behaviour and barrow landscapes in European Atlantic Façade (5000-2500 a. C.)”, aimed on the application of new approaches in spatial statistical modelling to revisit traditional megalithic locational concepts from a more systematic point of view, not least in Galician studies.
