EUROPE, NORTHERN AND WESTERN | Iron Age

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

During the Iron Age (800-51 BC) in northern and western Europe, archaeological evidence indicates the development of complex, urban societies, with intensive manufacturing of bronze, iron, pottery, and other materials, and extensive trade systems with other parts of the continent and beyond. While the archaeological database for this part of the world is very large, investigators debate the meanings of patterns in the evidence for understanding social organization, ritual practice, and other aspects of these late prehistoric societies.
