Description

This volume presents preliminary results of excavation at the Late Iron Age oppidum settlement of Kelheim. The volume is divided into four main sections. The first explains the reasons for investigations at Kelheim. The second presents the results of the excavations, regarding both settlement features and artifact distribution. The third includes special studies of several categories of materials, as well as discussion of the chronology of the occupation and presentation of the results of the landscape survey. The final section addresses some major questions about late prehistoric Europe from the perspective of these excavations and the analytical results. It presents investigations into ritual behavior in the Kelheim region and uses this theme to argue for strong continuity of tradition from prehistoric times into the Middle Ages.


Peter S. Wells is Professor of Anthropology at the University of Minnesota. His books include How Ancient Europeans Saw the World (Princeton, 2012), Barbarians to Angels: The Dark Ages Reconsidered (Norton, 2008), and The Barbarians Speak: How the Conquered Peoples Shaped Roman Europe (Princeton, 1999).
