Celts from Antiquity

Paperback
This volume bringing together papers from 75 years of the archaeological journal Antiquity turns its attention to the Celts. As the editors set out in the introduction, the term Celtic is problematic, and the book essentially addresses 1st millennium BC in Europe, including discussion of the definition of the term Celticity along the way. There are twenty-six papers divided into four sections: Celticity , Continental Europe , The southern British Iron Age , and The Scottish Iron Age . The contributors include the scholars Geoffrey Wainwright, Christopher Hawkes and J.V.S. Megaw as well as more contemporary work to give a perspective on the development of archaeological thought.
