"Living Well Together" investigates the development of the Neolithic in southeast and central Europe from 6500-3500 cal BC with special reference to the manifestations of settling down. A collection of reports and comments on recent fieldwork in the region, "Living Well Together?" provides 14 tightly written and targeted papers presenting interpretive discussions from important excavations and reassessments of our understanding of the Neolithic. Each paper makes a significant contribution to existing knowledge about the period, and the book, like its companion (Un)settling the Neolithic (Oxbow 2005) will be a benchmark text for work in this region. The reports in "Living Well Together?" play out the critical questions posed in the earlier volume: how should one interpret settlement; what of the difference between tells and flat sites; what do we mean by permanent occupation; can we avoid the assumptions that underlie claims for year-round residence or seasonal occupation; why, in some regions and at some times, did people maintain residence for so many generations that monumental tell settlements grew to dominate the visual and social landscape; what would a viewshed analysis of tells reveal; what are the dynamics of households in Neolithic Greece; how should we see the emergence of pottery in terms of material culture; and what were the origins of the LBK, and how can we understand its development. The volume's authors have succeeded in attacking existing thought, in provoking new discussion and in creating new paths to understanding the nature of human existence in the Neolithic. Together they set a new agenda for studying the Neolithic across and beyond southeastern and central Europe.

Review:

The editors (and individual authors) have succeeded in highlighting the need for multi-disciplinary approaches to a diverse archaeological record in order to generate meaningful and realistic narratives of the past.'--Malcolm Lillie "Antiquity, Vol. 83.320, June 2009 "

The well-known specialists in Eurasian prehistory, Douglass Bailey and Alasdair Whittle, together with Daniela Hoffmann, gathered 23 authors in order to frame a new problem in prehistory: whether our earliest ancestors lived well together. None of the 15 contributions answer this question either positively or negatively, but all provide evidence from the Danube basin and some neighbouring regions for further discussion. This valuable collection covers the core region of interest of Vere Gordon Childe and shows how the knowledge on European prehistory developed and changed after his The Danube in Prehistory (1929).'--Lolita Nikolova "European Journal of Archaeology, 14.1-2, 2011 "

About the Author:

Alasdair Whittle is Distinguished Research Professor in Archaeology at the University of Cardiff, specialising in the Neolithic period. He has led several major excavations at Avebury and in Europe. His many publications include Europe in the Neolithic: the creation of new worlds (CUP), The Archaeology of People: Dimensions of Neolithic Life (Routledge), and Gathering Time: Dating the Early Neolithic Enclosures of Southern Britain and Ireland (Oxbow, with Alex Bayliss & Frances Healy), which won the British Archaeological Award for Best Book in 2012. Daniela Hofmann is a lecturer in the institute of archaeology of the University of Hamburg. Her research focuses on the Neolithic of Europe with particular emphasis on changes in burial practices, routines and architecture and the construction of identity.
