Communities and Connections by Chris Gosden
Book DescriptionFor almost forty years the study of the Iron Age in Britain has been dominated by Professor Sir Barry Cunliffe. Between the 1960s and 1980s he led a series of large-scale excavations at famous sites including the Roman baths at Bath, Fishbourne Roman palace, and Danebury hillfort which revolutionized our understanding of Iron Age society, and the interaction between this world of 'barbarians' and the classical civilizations of the Mediterranean. His standard text on Iron Age Communities in Britain is in its fourth edition, and he has published groundbreaking volumes of synthesis on The Ancient Celts (OUP, 1997) and on the peoples of the Atlantic coast, Facing the Ocean (OUP, 2001). This volume brings together papers from more than thirty of Professor Cunliffe's colleagues and students to mark his retirement from the Chair of European Archaeology at the University of Oxford, a post which he has held since 1972. The breadth of the contributions, extending over 800 years and ranging from the Atlantic fringes to the eastern Mediterranean, is testimony to Barry Cunliffe's own extraordinarily wide interests.

Technologies of Enchantment?, Hardback (August 2012)
This volume connects Celtic art to its archaeological context, looking at how it was made, used, and deposited. Based on a comprehensive database, it brings together current theories concerning the links between people and artefacts, arguing that Celtic art was used to negotiate social position and relations in an unstable Iron Age world.
Oxford Handbook of Archaeology, Hardback (March 2009)
The Handbook, written by 35 leading experts, provides an authoritative guide to the full range of archaeological activities past and present. It will give the reader a sense of the history of the subject and of the main theoretical debates, as well as a taste of the excitement generated by archaeological exploration.
Knowing Things, Hardback (December 2007)
This book explores the early history of the Pitt Rivers Museum and its collections. Thousands of people collected objects for the Museum between its foundation in 1884 and 1945, and they, and the objects they collected, provide a series of insights into the early history of archaeology and anthropology, as well as a snapshot of the British Empire.
Sensible Objects, Paperback (July 2006)» View all books by Chris Gosden
Anthropologists of the senses have long argued that cultures differ in their sensory registers. This book applies this idea to material culture and the social practices that endow objects with meanings in both colonial and post colonial relationships. It challenges the privileged position of the sense of vision in the analysis of material culture.
