Celtic Fortifications by Ian Ralston

Book Description

From northern Scotland to southern Iberia the enclosures around hill- and promontory-forts are the most conspicuous component of the Iron Age archaeological record. Ian Ralston looks at their construction and reconstruction and at the architecture of banks, walls, ramparts and ditches, gateways and ancillary features. He examines the placing of these fortifications in the landscape and their effectiveness as hill-fort defences in war. He also considers these enclosures as signs and symbols. The work is completed with a selective gazetteer.

Books By Author Ian Ralston

Neolithic of Mainland Scotland by Ian Ralston Neolithic of Mainland Scotland, Paperback (March 2016)

What was life like in Scotland between 4000 and 2000 BC? Where were people living? Why did they spend so much time building extravagant ritual monuments? This volume presents fresh research and radical new interpretations of the pits, postholes, ditches, rubbish clumps, human remains and broken potsherds left behind by our Neolithic forebears.

Celts of Iron Age Europe by Ian Ralston Celts of Iron Age Europe, Paperback (May 2011)

Otherwise known as the world of Asterix, this fierce society existed in Europe many centuries ago. This book looks at how it came into existence, at its heroes and princes, how it expanded, resisting the force of the Roman Empire and how it eventually merged with its Mediterranean invaders.

Archaeology and Early History of Angus by Ian Ralston Archaeology and Early History of Angus, Paperback (July 2007)

Popular views of Scottish archaeology are dominated by images of the great stone monuments of the west and north - such as chambered tombs and brochs. This book provides an overview of a part of Lowland Scotland, with its own, very different, archaeological record.
