Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
This book proposes a model of subsistence, land use, and society for the Arveni, a powerful people in the Auvergne region of central France during the late Iron Age or 'La Tène' (c. 450-50 BC). The data derives from 10 years of field and bibliographic research, and a GIS-connected database of all sites registered in the archives of the region. The objective was to counter pervasive models grounded on the stereotypical comments of Mediterranean enemies, not archaeological evidence.
