This volume reports on the excavation of a series of six Iron Age cemeteries in Champagne, France: Ménil-Annelles, Ville-sur-Retourne, Juniville, Alincourt, Saulces-Champenoises and Quilly. All the Champagne cemeteries were located via their distinctive ditched enclosures which served as the focus of each burial group. The excavations were conducted by an Anglo-French team of archaeologists between 1971 and 1982. In this report they describe the spatial arrangement of each cemetery and its burials, and consider the relative chronology of the series, from Hallstatt and La Tène to the Gallo-Roman period. They compare the cemeteries with other known burial sites from the region, and discuss the local evidence for changing funerary rituals. Specialist chapters deal with the Celtic coins, pottery and petrographic analyses, glass vessels, metalwork (including weapons and jewellery), Roman artefacts, human and animal bones, and the Iron Age and Roman landscape. All pots from each burial are further described and illustrated in a complete inventory at the end of the volume.
