Overview

This monumental 'classic of British archaeology' remains as definitive and essential as ever with this new Fourth Edition. Taking account of the significant developments in Iron Age archaeology and scientific technologies that have been made since the third edition was published in 1991, this book has, for example, revised its treatment of regional groupings and settlement patterns. The format has also been adjusted with old prefaces and all footnotes removed and new drawings added. A superb study that will last well into the 21st century.
