Abstract [en]

The building of a house, or a monument, involves an important change, which significantly alters people’s roles in the landscape and their view of it. Places could be seen as unique and socially constructed. The naming of places confirms the significance of particular locations.

Since the 1980´s a mass of new Early Neolithic material has been uncovered. One of the most important discoveries has been the long houses. After 1986, when the first one was excavated at Mossby in southernmost Scania several similar houses have been identified.

Many of the earliest Funnel Beaker sites like Oxie, Svenstorp, Värby and Månasken are made up of different types of pits and almost nothing else 

The pits, like on for example the large site Svenstorp and Månasken in SW Scania, are often layered meaning that they were actually recut and reused. Large amounts of flints debris are found in the pits, but also obviously unused implements like flake axes, flake scrapers and in some cases even complete axes and vessels.
