Chronological Problems of the Pre-Roman Iron Age in Northern Europe: Symposium at the Institute of Prehistoric and Classical Archaeology, University of Copenhagen, December 8 Many years have passed since the last time when the problems of the Pre-Roman Iron Age chronology of Scandinavia were debated at large. CHRONOLOGICAL PROBLEMS OF THE PRE-ROMAN IRON AGE IN NORTHERN EUROPE Contents: Ryszard Woiagiewicz (19th of June th of January ), J. Martens, Copenhagen 5 Introduction, J. Martens. Almost tirelessly research is concerned with chronological questions of the Middle and Late La Tène Period or – in the Germanic-influenced lands – of the Late Pre-Roman Iron Age. Here, the focus concentrates very much on the problem of the parallelization of lar­.

The Iron Age in northern Europe is markedly distinct from the Celtic La Tène culture south of it. The old longrange trading networks south-north between the Mediterranean cultures and Northern Europe, had broken down at the end of the Nordic Bronze Age and caused a rapid and deep cultural change in Scandinavia. Bronze, which was an imported metal, suddenly became very scarce and iron, which . History of Europe - History of Europe - The Iron Age: During most of the Middle and Late Bronze Age, iron was present, albeit scarce. It was used for personal ornaments and small knives, for repairs on bronzes, and for bimetallic items. The Iron Age thus did not start with the first appearance of iron but rather at the stage when its distinct functional properties were being exploited and it. The Germanic peoples (also called Teutonic, Suebi or Gothic in older literature) are an Indo-European ethno-linguistic group of Northern European origin, identified by their use of the Germanic languages which diversified out of Proto-Germanic starting during the Pre-Roman Iron Age.. The term “Germanic” originated in classical times, when groups of tribes were referred to using this term. However, Copper Age was the first phase of Metal Age, which continued up to the discovery of iron i e before the beginning of the Iron Age. Iron Age dates between B.C. and B.C. which means a time of about three thousand years ago from now. Late Copper Age is considered as Bronze Age which marks the Copper Age off from the Iron Age.

The southernmost extent of Germanic cultures beyond Jastorf has recently been accounted for at the final stages of the Pre-Roman Iron Age, with the paucity of Late-La Téne bracelet-types in Thuringia and northeastern Hesse proposed to suggest population movements between the central-Elbe/Saale region, Main-Franconia and the edge of the Alps and to have been triggered by the spread of the . In Europe, the Iron Age is the last stage of the prehistoric period and the first of the protohistoric periods, which initially means descriptions of a particular area by Greek and Roman writers. For much of Europe, the period came to an abrupt local end after conquest by the Romans, though ironworking remained the dominant technology until recent times. Elsewhere it may last until the early centuries AD, and either Christianization or a new conquest in the Migration Period. Iron . This chapter examines the rural organization of Iron Age societies within northern Gaul. It focuses on the structure of settlements and their related territories, in particular exploring the place of the individual, the family, and local communities within the wider landscape.
