ENGLISH HERITAGE IRON AGE Summary

ENGLISH HERITAGE IRON AGE by Barry Cunliffe

The first millenium BC was a time of dramatic change in Europe, dominated by the emergence of Rome as a mega-state. Britain, on the periphery of these developments, witnessed huge social and economic change, seeing the end of the Bronze Age cycle of subsistence farming and the beginning of a more complex society which was to alter very little until the oceans were conquered in the 16th century. This book is a detailed study of these developments.

Table of Contents

The land; the people - race, language and population; the great transition - taming the land; conflicting claims - the emergence of the tribal entities; reformation and tribal society; of chiefs and kings; war mad but not of evil character; approaching the gods; the Iron Age achievement - a longer perspective.
