    Review quote
    "This is an important and original book, dealing not simply with Iron Age archaeology, but with the very foundations of British society." - Colin Renfrew "This is an occasion for celebration...the book is readable, abundantly illustrated and has full bibliographic references. Its severest critic should give it a resounding welcome." - Stanley Thomas, New Scientist
