    Hi Jill,

    Thank you so much for such lovely comments.

    I am afraid I can’t recommend any courses on the Neolithic. I found none and had to do all the research myself. There are plenty of good books. There would be plenty of courses in the UK if you are happy to travel! I wish I could be more helpful.

    Thank you again,

    Lynne

  2. Jill Carr says:

    So delighted to have discovered you via the unimelb public lectures. Am abt to call Readings to see if they have yr latest book. Inspiring to see how you pursue yr many interests. I too love spiders – they are fascinating. Likewise anything to do with the Neolithic. Can you recommend any archaeological courses focussed on the Neolithic?

    Congratulations n good wishes
    Jill Carr
