By D. W. Harding

Extra vast ranging, either geographically and chronologically, than any prior learn, this well-illustrated e-book deals a brand new definition of Celtic artwork. Tempering the much-adopted art-historical method, D.W. Harding argues for a broader definition of Celtic paintings and perspectives it inside of a much broader archaeological context. He re-asserts historical Celtic identification after a decade of deconstruction in English-language archaeology. Harding argues that there have been groups in Iron Age Europe that have been pointed out traditionally as Celts, seemed themselves as Celtic, or who spoke Celtic languages, and that the artwork of those groups may possibly quite be considered as Celtic artwork. This study will be integral for these humans eager to take a clean and cutting edge standpoint on Celtic artwork.

Iron ore is widely available across Europe, and it is probable that local supplies were exploited without necessitating extensive mining operations. Copper and tin, on the other hand, did require deeper mining. Information regarding mining techniques, and more especially about the communities involved in mining, is less easily inferred. Modern research at the salt-mine settlement at Dürrnberg-bei-Hallein (Stöllner, 2003) paints a bleak picture of conditions underground, with miners suffering from parasite infestation and child labour making up a significant part of the workforce.
