I would like to thank the following people for advice, information and references (the author claims all responsibility for the how this information may have been interpreted): Sophie Elixhauser, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München; Peter Witridge, Memorial University of Newfoundland; Caroline Wickham-Jones, University of Aberdeen, and Jacqui Mulville, Cardiff University. Discussion of the prehistoric archaeology of the Scilly Isles, and its wider context within prehistoric Britain, was greatly aided by the recent publication of the Isles of Scilly Research Framework, edited by Johns (2012), and I would like to express thanks to all who contributed to its production. Finally, I would like to thank an anonymous referee for the extremely helpful and constructive comments on an earlier draft of this article.
