New Perspectives on Celtic 'Barbarians' in Western and Central Europe, 500-250 BC
Distributed for Amsterdam University Press
By means of an extensive dataset of all elite graves, including sword graves, in the Marne-Moselle zone between 500 and 250 BC, the changes in burial practices during the Late-Hallstatt and the Early-La Téne periods are established. These developments are related to the transformation of the society through the emergence of the institutionalisation of social and territorial rights linked to families integrated in clientele networks.
