This volume provides the results of a 30-year excavation, reconstruction, and public interpretation campaign at the late prehistoric inland promontory settlement of Castell Henllys, here focusing on the defensive sequence and the role of monumentality in later prehistory. The site has international significance because of the extensive excavations of the Iron Age palisaded settlement and later earthen ramparts, complex gateway, and chevaux-de-frise of upright stones.

Produktbeschreibung
This volume provides the results of a 30-year excavation, reconstruction, and public interpretation campaign at the late prehistoric inland promontory settlement of Castell Henllys, here focusing on the defensive sequence and the role of monumentality in later prehistory. The site has international significance because of the extensive excavations of the Iron Age palisaded settlement and later earthen ramparts, complex gateway, and chevaux-de-frise of upright stones. It is now widely recognised that the Iron Age consisted of many regional cultural traditions, and the excavations at Castell Henllys provide a vital contrast to the well-known large hillfort communities in other parts of England and Wales as well as across Europe. As such, it is a unique window into a widespread but largely ignored site category and form of social and economic organisation. The publication will provide a case study for the construction and use of the earthworks of a major European late prehistoric settlement type - the Iron Age hillfort; the monumental construction is compared with other communal investments such as the Mississippian mounds. It will also offer an innovative form of site reporting, including alternative interpretations of the earthworks as either military defences or the community-binding symbols. Along with Excavation, Experiment and Heritage Interpretation: Castell Henllys Hillfort Then and Now, these books will be required reading by those studying the late prehistoric archaeology of Britain and Europe at advanced undergraduate and postgraduate level, and by those in North America studying complex societies, monumentality and ways of writing archaeology.

Autorenporträt
Harold Mytum MA (Cambridge) DPhil (Oxford) FSA is Director of the Centre for Manx Studies and Professor of Archaeology at the University of Liverpool. His fieldwork at Castell Henllys and other regional sites has continued over 30 years, partly within a field school training context (Global Perspectives on Archaeological Field Schools. Constructions of knowledge and experience. New York: Springer, 2012). He has written numerous articles and book chapters on reconstruction and public interpretation at Castell Henllys, and a monograph, journal articles, and book chapters on the later prehistory of the region (Williams and Mytum Llawhaden, Dyfed: Excavations on a group of small defended enclosures, 1980-4. Oxford: Tempus Reparatum, 1994). Harold is also well known for his historical archaeology research (Recording and Analysing Graveyards. Council for British Archaeology Handbook 15.

New York: Kluwer Academic/Plenum, 2004; Carr and Mytum eds Cultural Heritage and Prisoners of War: Creativity Behind Barbed Wire.
