Monumental ceremonial and ritual spaces are hallmarks of human development that predate agriculture and technology.   Can modern minds ever hope to understand the way Neolithic societies were thinking?  We will explore the traditions of various Indigenous people in pursuit of a clearer interpretation of how civilization got on its current path.
 
The People of the Great Stones Symposium welcomes contributions from researchers, scholars working across diverse disciplines, sites and practices, as well as tribal spokespersons and historians.  Typical presentation time for accepted papers is 25 minutes.  At least one author must attend to present and for inclusion in the conference publication.  Our program will include selected individual papers as well as an anticipated satellite program of events.  Presentations and subsequent publication will be in English.
 
250-300 word abstracts of presentations should be submitted in English, in either Text, Word or PDF formats.   Please include author
