Abstract:
Outlines a theory that the absence of evidence for cereal cultivation in the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age of Britain can be explained by the local preference for round houses. Evidence from the Continent suggests that the common dwelling was a longhouse, which doubled as a grain store; British roundhouses were probably unsuitable for this dual role and grain will have been stored in separate structures. Because separate granaries will have been less prone to fire than domestic buildings, charred grain is less likely to occur in the archaeological record.
