The establishment of the Neolithic in Europe involved the successful colonisation of this region by domesticated crops and animals. These required, in turn, the available niche environments that could sustain the establishment and reproduction of such populations, environments that were constructed through the interplay between human practices of management and landscape development. It is suggested that the implications of this model allow for a nuanced understanding of the dynamic relationship between humans, plants, animals and landscape that hopefully escapes the ‘migration versus acculturation’ debate.
