The Neolithic Studies Group (NSG) attracts interested parties from across Europe. This year’s papers included research on Linearbandkeramik (LBK), the first Neolithic culture found on continental Europe. The focus was on evidence for movement of people from Hungary to Alsace and was presented by members of the ‘The First Farmers in Central Europe:diversity in LBK lifeways’ project. Closer to home Duncan Garrow & Fraser Sturt discussed the early Neolithic of the Channel Islands – particularly Jersey and Guernsey. Their current project ‘Stepping Stones to the Neolithic’ is exploring the role of the western seaways in the transition from Mesolithic to Neolithic in Britain. in an interesting paper, they argued that the presence of ‘odd’ or unrepresentative artefacts on Guernsey is rather evidence of exchange between the island and mainland Europe and Jersey which was still connected at the time.
