Thanks m300572 and Attilla the Bun. You've been helpful. I appreciate the document wich was an interesting read (once I finally got to read it). The stone shares were something new to me, but makes perfect sense in the development of the ard. I'll try BIAB and CBA to see what more I can find out abo...

I moderate the Kelticos forum and we were having a problem with spammers. One solution we tried was to have people register with real names, but that only seperated the real users from spambots. Ended up editing the registration form so only a few fields are visible on registration, like this: http:...

Now I've got lots of drawing of reapers, hooks, etc to keep me busy. But one thing I've not found anywhere is a description of a shovel ! Yeah, there were hoes and rakes and all the same sort of stuff we use today. But what was used to dig all those hillforts, post holes, storage pits, and so on? Th...

Thanks guys. I don't think I can take seriously what Caesar wrote anyway,but it's interesting to know how the enemy was percieved. I like the idea of a "walk through" like Madoc has given. If we did more presentations I can see where this would be suitable. Most of what we do is attend fai...

Ancient agriculture

Hi All, I've been reading about the early days of the Buster experiment, and there was a note about how the "Committee for Ancient Agriculture" became the expert advisers on things like tools and livestock. My goal it to have a small set of functional tools that I can use to build things w...

"Celtic" battle tactics?

Okay, I've gotten involved in a really cool project that I could use some help with. The local Roman and Celtic groups have been asked to help a group of 120 students to have a tactical event next March. The classes are being split into equal halves of Romans vs. Celts. What I am starting to delve i...

I just got the book Understanding the British Iron Age: an Agenda for Action , ISBN: 1874335037x (pub. 2001). It has lots of good and some new info on the period, and puts to rest my ABC question. There is alot of work that that lies ahead to standardize "Iron Age" dates for all of Britain. There ar...

The reason A, B abd C came about in the first place is because Hallstatt and LaTene was not sufficient to describe the cultures in Britain. With all the new evidence that came about as ealy as the 30's, the ABC Iron Ages were created. Notice on the Continent that scholars differ on calling LaTene I,...

Iron Age ABC

Hi Folks, I've been reading lots of books and journals on the Iron Age, and I've found some authors like to use the system of Iron Age A, B and C when describing the British Iron Age. I like the system since it points out cultural ascpects of some place or an artifact as it differs from another just...

I too would like to see a copy of that in English. So many good titles are in German. I believe you are talking about this one: Textilfunde der Eisenzeit in Norddeutschland . Karl Wachholtz Verlag, Neumuenster. ISBN 3-529-01515-6 As of now this title is only in German: http://worldcatlibraries.org/w...

Yes! Nice going! I see you've been adding to it. Very good to have a guide since the others online tend to be a little outdated or very limited. I have long been curious about those penannular brooches. I've been looking through my reports and very rarely do I find those designs. I did find a few in...

Interesting place. Couldn't they do enough research to do it better? I wouldn't have known about the big ol' nails from the photos. But the hearth items??? The fire dog has been classified as a furniture stand. Even the cauldrons look cheapy 19th century. Maybe given some time it will improve. Has a...

Thanks David! There are some images in that file I have not seen before. That will help in some of the wood turnings and tools I plan to make over summer. Looking forward to seeing more about the furniture and fittings for the roundhouses you speak of. Somewhere I read that a Roman commented that th...

Iron Age furniture/wood objects

I've been on the hunt for proper Iron Age furniture. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I've seen some example of reconstructions in roundhouses on the web, probably from Busters or Castell Hennllys. I have seen a table derived from a bog find in Tyrone. But I have had the hardest time find...
