Metrology, Memory and Long-Term Landscape Inhabitation: Evidence for the Septarian Package on the Atlantic Façade
Roslyn M. Frank
All along the Atlantic façade there is evidence that distinctive septarian units of measurement were employed, suggesting a continuity of metrological practice and more particularly the association of the Septarian Package with agro-pastoral practices. The goal of this paper is to show how this metrological Sprachbund with its geographical diffusion and memory traces can be brought into play to examine cultural conceptualisations and practices that might have been associated with megalithic structures found along the Atlantic façade.
