Abstract:
The subject matter of this thesis is Scottish Early Bronze Age pottery: its typological classification, its distribution in space and time and its associated relics. The material upon which the enquiry has been based consists of all the examples of urns which have been placed on record up to date. A complete list of these examples, with details and bibliographical references for each is given in two Appendices. Distribution maps have been prepared and the numbers on them and in the Appendices correspond. In order to provide a sufficient foundation on which to base a thorough discussion of the subject it has been found necessary to preface the whole by a deaoriptïon of the general oonditions forming the Neolithic background to the Earliest Bronze Age. In dealing with the ceramic the following are taken for granted: - (1) The assumption that the Beaker penetration of Scotland came from the south whether by land or sea. (2) A working knowledge of Aberoromby's pioneer study of the subject.
