Middle Iron Age Warfare of the Hillfort Dominated Zone c. 400 BC to c. 150 BCJon Bryant Finney 2006 © BAR Publishing
The purpose of this study is to define the nature of warfare within the Middle Iron Age of the hillfort dominated zone from the archaeological remains and ethnographic inferences relating to the social significance of weapons, within specific analogies. In the process, the work provides a new model for Middle Iron Age warfare in the hillfort dominated zone of lowland Britain, rather than using the generalised model derived from continental Classical sources and seventh/eighth century AD Irish vernacular literature. The process of model generation includes comparisons of the proposed model with another prehistoric European culture within the same temporal framework; Early Iron Age Denmark (400-50 BC) was selected as the region presents a powerful foil for the proposed model for the Middle Iron Age of the hillfort zone.
