The Strange Case of the Grooved Ware Pot.

Tracing Lines, Crafting Worlds: Orkney, Stonehenge and the Strange Case of the Grooved Ware Pot.

A reminder that the next Macc Lit & Phil meeting is this Wednesday 9th October at 7.30pm.

Mike Copper is an archaeologist who works at the Ness of Brodgar in Orkney, and who also makes replica prehistoric pottery. Grooved Ware appears to have originated in Orkney, and then during the 3rd millenium BC spread to other communities in Britain and Ireland. At the same time timber and stone circles started to appear. What was going on?
