The Atlantic Celts : ancient people or modern invention? by Simon James( Book )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 428 libraries worldwide
"In this book Simon James surveys ancient and modern ideas of the Celts and challenges them in the light of revolutionary new thinking on the Iron Age peoples of Britain. Examining how ethnic and national identities are constructed, he presents an alternative history of the British Isles, proposing that the idea of insular Celtic identity is really a product of the rise of nationalism in the eighteenth century. He considers whether the 'Celticness' of the British Isles is a romantic fantasy, even a politically dangerous falsification of history which has implications in the current debate on devolution and self-government for the Celtic regions."--Jacket

Becoming Roman, being Gallic, staying British : research and excavations at Ditches "Hillfort" and villa, 1984-2006 by Stephen Trow( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 106 libraries worldwide
"Excavations at Ditches in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds during the 1980s investigated a large late Iron Age enclosure which proved to contain a remarkably early Roman villa. Discoveries included a well-preserved cellar and a range of finds, including Gallo-Belgic wares, Iron Age coins, coin moulds, Venus figurines and brooches indicating high-status occupation in the late Iron Age and early Roman period. This volume not only includes a report on the excavations of 1984-5, but also additional work, including a new geophysical survey and reassessment of the finds. Alongside re-appraisal of much of the 1980s evidence, this analysis allows the earlier material to be compared with more recent studies of the late Iron Age-Roman transition contributing to debates over processes of 'Romanization', questions of social and political continuity and the nature of villa development in Britain."--Jacket
