In this essay I have chosen to study how the orientation between the living and the dead during the Middle Neolithic differed. How were the settlement sites orientated in comparison with the monuments for the dead. I am also studying the way the landscape in the different regions looked like during the time the monuments were used, but also how it looks like today. Were the settlements and the grave/monuments located after a ritual scheme or just randomly. The investigation area is : Ireland as a western point, Orkney as a north point and south England as a south point. I have chose these areas to achieve a geographical approach and to look at different landscapes.
