Abstract: Understanding how researchers perceive key research developments in their fields is not straightforward. This paper reports on a project focusing on perceptions of key developments in the adoption of agriculture (Mesolithic-Neolithic transition) in Ireland. The project involved over 60 interviews with active researchers, generating qualitative data that provide overview of these perceptions. Despite much diversity, several areas emerge as having been particularly important: including methodologies and wider developments in archaeological practice. Variation between Ireland and other areas of north-west Europe is suggested by some aspects of the data.
