Product Description

Review

"This is an important and original book, dealing not simply with Iron Age archaeology, but with the very foundations of British society." - Colin Renfrew

"This is an occasion for celebration...the book is readable, abundantly illustrated and has full bibliographic references. Its severest critic should give it a resounding welcome." - Stanley Thomas, New Scientist

As a (hopefully) intelligent general reader I was interested to get a sense of what kind of culture, economy, society existed here, and how far it had developed, when the Romans first stepped on our shores. I started with Francis Pryor's "Britain BC". If an overview is all you want, stop there. It's very good. Wanting a bit more detail about the evidence (and a bit less speculation) I moved on to Timothy Darvill's "Prehistoric Britain" which is excellent and highly recommended. Barry Cunliffes' "Iron Age Communities in Britain" is a different kind of animal. It is dealing with the last milennium before the Romans came. It is a brilliant scholarly overview of that period, and presents a highly detailed selection of the evidence available at the time of writing (2005) - indeed this is the stated purpose of the book. It is very well written, it's quite wonderful, but it is hard work - so only come here if you're very very keen to know more.

Format: Paperback
I like Barry Cunliffe's approach to pre-Roman Britain and I'm delighted to have this among my reference books. He describes the different regions of Britain and the different ways in which they were farmed, lived in and defended. It's a sensible book which smashes a lot of romantic myths about the Warrior Celts. Prof Cunliffe talks knowledgeably about farming which, after all, was the main occupation of British people in the Iron Age.

As a non professional attendee of archaeology courses and lectures this is a manageable read. Not to much dry academic detail but enough interest to engage the brain. It will also keep me occupied for quite a while!

Format: Paperback
The ultimate guide to Iron Age Britain for the student through to the proffessional Archaeologist. The paperback has made this academic book availaible and affordable to all.
One comment made on the above scentance said this review was of no help if you have not seen the hardback version of the book. For futher help, the author is one of the leading Archaeologist in this particular area (the Iron Age) and with each updated edition of this book further updated research seems to have been added. Barry Cunliffe covers the development of the iron age across the whole of UK with text and illistration and uses his vast experience to bring the Iron Age archaeological record to life.
If this review does not help you to buy the book one way or the other, I would go to a library, or remember there is a return service!
