Reviews & Quotes
"'The book will serve as an excellent introduction for students interested in British prehistory... For professionals in the field of archaeology, it is a model of how big questions can be addressed by close attention to the archaeological data. '"

"Giles’ book is much more than an account of the archaeology of East Yorkshire; frequent theoretical discussions exploring varied aspects—from how to interpret burial evidence to the nature of identity and performance—are of much broader resonance; this is certainly not a book to be read only by those interested in the Iron Age. It is an excellent example of how to bring the past to life whilst presenting complex archaeological data."
"This is a richly detailed book that lives up to the promise of its title and introduction. As well as a sophisticated synthesis, it provides a satisfying exposition of how landscape may be constituted through objects."
"...a comprehensive and provocative volume which will be essential reading for all those interested in Iron Age Britain...this book provides an important addition to our knowledge of Iron Age Britain, promoting some of its most spectacular archaeology"
