Arts and Crafts in Iron Age East Yorkshire

Arts and Crafts in Iron Age East Yorkshire

This volume presents a new approach to art in Iron Age Britain and beyond. It aims to collapse the historic distinction between arts and crafts during the period 400BC-AD100 by examining the purposeful nature of patterns on all decorated Iron Age objects. A case study from East Yorkshire (UK), a region well known for its elaborate Iron Age metalwork, is presented.
