Celtic Gold

Author(s): Peter J. Reynolds

Year: 1986


The conventional view of the lron Age is that it was a subsistence society, eking out a basic existence until the arrival of civilising Romans. As Dr Peter Reynolds of the Butser Ancient Farm reveals, nothing could be further from the truth. Britain was the bread basket of Western Europe and a major supplier of grain to the Roman Empire.
