This revised doctoral dissertation examines the sociopolitical and economic transformations that took place during the transition from the Bronze to Iron Age in Southern Britain. Based on three study areas (South Downs, Wessex and East Anglia) Greis develops models for understanding the degree of complexity, social integration, centralisation, the nature of agricultural and subsistence practices, and the development of hierarchies, during this period.
