An understanding of a neolithic of the Western Isles is developed through an examination of ceramics, incorporating both domestic and mortuary assemblages, from a variety of sites in the region. This empirical focus, exploring alternative explanations of the surviving evidence, demonstrates the interpretive potential of archaeological ceramics, in which the artefactual evidence is employed to establish a more comprehensive understanding of social discourse. A regional history of the Western Isles during the neolithic, encompassing both the artefactual and monumental evidence, is developed.
