The question of the existence of a Chalcolithic period hardly arises in
continental Europe where colleagues apparently have little difficulty
defining and working with the concept.  Why is this not the case in Britain?
 Is the evidence lacking or should our interpretations of the Neolithic /
Bronze Age transition be revised?

If you have a view on this or would like to hear what others think, do come
along to the Prehistoric Society conference to be hosted at Bournemouth
University next month.  The conference will address the question of a
British Chalcolithic and seek to find an answer through papers from
international speakers and plenty of debate.  

The event will start with a wine reception on the evening of Friday 18 April
and be followed by two daysí of papers and discussion, including an
introduction by Ben Roberts of the British Museum and the keynote lecture by
Stuart Needham.  The full conference programme, paper abstracts, and details
of accommodation and other essentials can be found on the web site at:

Bookings can be made directly via the web site or by contacting Marie
Dunning on +44(0)1202-965160, email [log in to unmask]

This event is generating a lot of interest on both sides of the Channel so
please do book your place to attend in good time.

Regards

Eileen Wilkes
