|■ the emergence of elites and trade in Iron Age Britain|
|■ the development of towns and commercial trade|
|■ the influence of the Roman Empire|
|■ settlement function, exchange and manufacturing.|
We have chosen to organise this section thematically partly because it mirrors the A Level syllabus and partly because an understanding of the themes is more transferable. A study of Maya temples may not be immediately useful to a student studying Neolithic Britain and vice versa, but an introduction to concepts of religion and ritual will be useful to both. We have included content, but its function is to illustrate. It may well be in just the right size chunks to put into essays but it is there to provide examples of archaeological ideas and debates.
