Overview

Since its first publication in 1971, Barry Cunliffe's monumental survey has established itself as a classic of British archaeology. This fully revised fourth edition maintains the qualities of the earlier editions, whilst taking into account the significant developments that have moulded the discipline in recent years. Barry Cunliffe here incorporates new theoretical approaches, technological advances and a range of new sites and finds, ensuring that Iron Age Communities in Britain remains the definitive guide to the subject.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Cunliffe's (archaeology, U. of Oxford) survey, first published in 1971 and revised in 1976, is a monumental, standard source, which required another revision because of the mass of new evidence (more than 700 new papers and books have been published in a decade) and the radical change in emphasis that has occurred in prehistoric studies. The text has been completely revised, new sections have been introduced, and all illustrations have been redrawn. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
