    Great article. I especially love the work of Graham and Merryn Dineley. I highly suggest reading their papers on brewing in Skara Brae. They use to be free only a year ago with a simple online search, but now it seems they can only be found through a paid academic journal subscription. If I remember correctly the ale was dry and brewed with meadowsweet. Anyhow, here are the cited papers:

    Dineley, M & Dineley G., 2000 “Neolithic Ale: Barley as a source of sugars for fermentation” in Fairbairn, A. (ed) Plants in the Neolithic and Beyond; pub Oxbow Books

    Dineley M. & Dineley G., 2000 “From Grain to Ale: Skara Brae a case study” in Ritchie, A. (ed) Neolithic Orkney in its European Context pub McDonald; Institute for Archaeo
    logical research, Univ of Cambridge
