1995, a comprehensive account of archaeological excavations between 1984 and 1989
First edition. Hardback in laminate boards. 28.5 × 22cm, 215pp.
Mill Hill, in Kent, is one of the richest Iron Age cemeteries in England, with most of the burials dating from the 2nd and 1st centuries BC. This volume presents the results of excavations between 1984 and 1989 by the Dover Archaeological Unit, but also includes the republication and reassessment of earlier finds, together with detailed reports on metalwork, pottery, human and animal bones, and radiocarbon dating. The most significant find was of a young man buried with sword, shield, ornaments and a bronze crown on his head; the decoration of the metalwork provided more examples of Early Celtic Art than from any other grave in England.
