Britain and The Celtic Iron Age


The people who lived in Britain during the Iron Age, in the centuries preceding the Roman invasion, are often called ‘Celtic’. Celts are seen as a family of European peoples, speaking related languages and sharing much in common, from art to aspects of religion and social organisation. Was the British Iron Age part of this supposed uniform Celtic world, or was it something much more distinctive, complex, strange and fascinating than we have been led to believe? A mass of new information and research is prompting fundamental reappraisals of the island’s prehistory, in ways which challenge many cherished ideas- not least that of a familiar “Celtic” past.

Drawing on recent research and discoveries, and on the wealth of archaeological evidence in the British museum and elsewhere, the authors offer a fresh and lively survey of the life, art and culture of Iron age Britons.

A must have for anyone interested in Celtic Britain.
