John Manley: Three Iron Ages in Sussex? Weald, Downs and Coastal Plain
The landscapes of Sussex can easily be divided into three – the coastal plain, the Downs and the Weald. Each landscape offered particular resources and advantages not found in the other two. Iron Age communities lived and worked in each of these landscapes in specific ways, giving a distinct quality to the surviving archaeological record in each area, and it is likely that the landscapes possessed different symbolic values for those living among them as well. This talk by John Manley will explore the three different Iron Ages of Sussex both from the practical and symbolic dimensions and suggest potential links between them.
