The Later Prehistory of North-West Europe provides a unique, up-to-date, and easily accessible synthesis of the later prehistoric archaeology of north-west Europe, transcending political and language barriers that can hinder understanding. By surveying changes in social forms, landscape organization, monument types, and ritual practices over six millennia, the volume reassesses the prehistory of north-west Europe from the late Mesolithic to the end of the pre-Roman Iron Age. It explores how far common patterns of social development are apparent across north-west Europe, and whether there were periods when local differences were emphasized instead. In relation to this, it also examines changes through time in the main axes of contact between the various regions of continental Europe, Britain, and Ireland.

Key to the volume's broad scope is its focus on the vast mass of new evidence provided by recent development-led excavations. The authors collate data that has been gathered on thousands of sites across Britain, Ireland, northern France, the Low Countries, western Germany, and Denmark, using sources including unpublished 'grey literature' reports. The results challenge many aspects of previous narratives of later prehistory, allowing the volume to present a distinctively fresh perspective.

Review:

well written and edited, and is both an essential text for anyone researching the subject area and a fascinating read for those interested in how we seek to discover and write prehistory. * Mike Pitts, British Archaeology * The book showcases the tremendous interpretative potential of development-led work and the importance of large-scale archaeological synthesis. It provides a vital current overview of European later prehistory, as well as a much-needed counterpoint to more detailed research. * Dr Anwen Cooper, Current Archaeology * reassesses long-established assumptions and narratives within the prehistoric archaeology of north-west Europe ... Offering fresh perspectives for those with an interest in academic and commercial archaeology, it also highlights the potential for grey-literature and big-data projects to change the scope of academic archaeology. * Ashley Kruger, Current World Archaeology *
