Originally published in 1957, this book presents a comprehensive study of Bronze Age cultures in France, in their later phases from the thirteenth to the seventh century BC, placing emphasis on the role of 'Tumulus and Urnfield culture'. Avoiding an overly broad approach, the text focuses in the main on eastern and north-eastern France 'as it was there that the new cultures first rooted, and thence new ideas were diffused'. Numerous illustrative figures are included and notes are incorporated throughout. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the Bronze Age, archaeology and the prehistory of the French region.
