Abstract

The transition from foraging systems to agricultural dependence is a persistent focus of
archaeological research, and the focus of a major research project supported by the
European Research Council (ERC grant no. 323842, ’ComPAg’). Gordon Childe, director
of the Institute of Archaeology 1947–1957, influentially defined the Neolithic revolution
as that which instigated a series of changes in human societies towards sedentism (settling in one place), larger populations, food production based on domesticated plants and animals, transformed cosmologies and the dawn of new malleable technologies such as ceramics and textiles (Childe 1936).
