Abstract:
A review of specific artefact types (including daggers, arrowheads and axes) and burial rites on the two sides of the western English Channel gives little credence to the migration of more than occasional individuals. On the contrary, an essential autonomy in the way that materials and artefacts are employed by elites comes through, yet this is set against some important material connections. It is suggested that interdependence was actually limited and the procurement of exotic goods and materials was driven by the needs of `cosmological acquisition' which, if anything, maintained real differences between distant participating societies. In Wessex, however, this exploitation of long-range contacts was to have profound consequences for subordinate centres based around Late Neolithic ceremonial complexes -- their ultimate transformation and eclipse.
