Society and Settlement in Iron Age Europe

ID: 1544 - Edit In OJS

A collection of nineteen papers bringing together recent research on the problems of Iron Age settlement archaeology in Europe and Great Britain.
The Proceedings of the annual conference of the Association Fran├žaise pour l'Etude de l'Age du Fer have become a major vehicle for recent research on the Iron Age in central and western Europe. In 1994 the conference met in Winchester to share common experiences in problems of settlement archaeology, not only on either side of the English Channel, but also from other areas of Europe. The result is a collection of papers from Britain, France and the Czech Republic. The volume also offers an overview of the history of research in Wessex, which, because of its rich legacy of settlements, hill forts and field systems, has been a trail blazer in theoretical and methodological approaches in archaeology for over a century.
