Experiment in Iron Age Archaeology
Author(s): Peter J. Reynolds
The article describes the first attempts of experimental archaeology projects in Iron Age agriculture in the context of the Butser Ancient Farm Research Project in 1967. The experiments concerned the whole agriculture cycle from sowing out the seeds to the storage possibilities in pits over the winter. The experiments opened the discussion of climate and work processes in agriculture. The experimentalists faced climate changes, mold, analysed the CO2 concentrations in order to finalized their results.
