Later Bronze Age Britain - 10 credits (HS2305)
The Later Bronze Age in Britain marks a major transformation in the archaeological record. Patterns of ritual behaviour, burial, settlement and artefact use all begin to change. This single module explores these major transformations which see the establishment of settled life, agrarian landscapes and the consolidation of social differentiation, especially in southern Britain. These themes are investigated by individual case studies and related to the wider European context.
