The Working Agroscape of the Iron Age - Landscape History

Author(s): Peter J Reynolds

Year: 1980


This paper represents an assay into the vexed area of prehistoric and in particular Iron Age agriculture. This is offered rather more as a polemic than a statement and is designed to provoke argument rather than agreement. The majority of the experimental data from which the arguments are raised is drawn from the current research programs at the Butser Ancient Farm Research Project, Hampshire.
