Guernsey : An Island Community of the Atlantic Iron Age, Paperback / softback Book

Guernsey : An Island Community of the Atlantic Iron Age Paperback / softback


This volume is largely composed of a report of excavations in St.

Peter Port in 1980-83, which revealed a later Iron Age settlement with a smithy and stone covered graves.

Not only Iron Age material was discovered, Bronze Age pottery also appeared, as well as later finds from Medieval and Roman times.

The rest of the study is devoted to the Iron Age cist burials, a special feature of the island, which exist in considerable numbers and have not been fully discussed since the 1920s.

A gazetteer of Iron Age sites and finds in Guernsey, Herm and Sark is followed by a brief discussion on the Iron Age occupation of Guernsey and its place in the trade between Armorica and Britain.
