    Question Best Books on the Nordic Bronze Age and Pre-Roman Iron Age?

    Could anyone recommend some good introductory books concerning the Nordic Bronze Age and the Pre-Roman Iron Age, preferably with good illustrations of weapons, houses, tools, clothing etc and if possible racial analysis of the people concerned?

    Anything would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Re: Nordic Bronze Age and Pre-Roman Iron Age

    Well, I have made a brief search for you and come across a few books that are highly recommended.



    Neolithic Britain

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...335512-6667146



    Bronze Age Britain

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...335512-6667146



    Neolithic and Bronze Age Scotland

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...335512-6667146

    All the books listed above delve into the life of those who lived in the Bronze Age and its impact in Europe.

    These books additionally contain images and information about the Bronze Age man's life. What's more, they concentrate on the British Bronze Age

    (I looked, but I couldn't find anything on the racial grounds of the Bronze Age peoples. Have a look around the web, and I'm sure that some reference will be made).

    I hope that helps a little.

    Thanks for taking the time to do that search, however the cultures I am referring to are centered in Prehistoric Germany and Scandinavia. </IMG>

    Re: Nordic Bronze Age and Pre-Roman Iron Age

    Concerning the Bronze age is difficult since the Classic Nordid type as we identify it today was only found first time during the Hallstat culture (first Northern Iron-age culture).

    However Montellius wrote about Nordics in the wide sense having its territory centered around Denmark, with as outskirts Northern Netherlands, NW-Germany and Southern-Sweden/Southern coastline of Norway, beginning ~2000 BC. these Nordids are however most likely belonging to a high/longskulled type (read Corded/Battle-Axe or better Boat-Axe) same type occurred in Thuringen.

    Re: Nordic Bronze Age and Pre-Roman Iron Age

    You should get both of these books; they cover everything you're interested in. If you have them, you won't need much else.

    The first book is The Mound People: Danish Bronze-Age Man Preserved (1974). It's out-of-print, and you can only get it second-hand, but it is a must have. It is richly illustrated, with lots of interesting information. There are pictures of clothing, weapons, jewelry, etc. As for race, here is one example I can quote, about the Skrydstrup woman:

    "...well-shaped face, long and narrow and of Nordic type...hair of the head was ash blonde with a reddish glint..."

    The second book is The Bog People: Iron-Age Man Preserved (1969). The book has recently been reprinted, and can be bought from Amazon, here:

    It contains many great images also; see some pictures from the book here:

    http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb..../histglob.html

    Both books are by the Danish archaeologist Peter V. Glob. He was an expert on ancient Scandinavia, and his books are scholarly, but still enjoyable and easy to read.

    They are excellent books, and I strongly urge you to buy them both; you won't be disappointed. If you buy the books, please let me know what you think of them, thanks!

    Remember thiedischer, you have to sort through a lot of crap here. Nobody, after 1939, ever wanted to talk about a "Nordic Bronze Age" ever again. Today, if you want to lean something about specific modern racial/ethnic entities, you have to sort through the writing of academics trying to hold on to their jobs by saying nothing for which they could get fired. Even in private discussions with a Professor of Indo-European Studies, I got code words.

    First, I would try Carlton Coon's The Races of Europe for an overview (although you have to read bits and pieces of several chapters and use the subject index). Then, after getting the overview and a list of all the ethnic entities which might be Nordic in the Bronze Age, check Coon's sources and see if there is anything more. Use Coon to move the discussion into the Iron Age, through the German expansion. By then, the tribal names are pretty well known so you can flip over to conventional history for ethnographic details.

    Neolithic and Bronze Age Overview

    Neolithic and Bronze Age

    by Nigel Brown and Peter Murphy


    A number of accounts of parts of the Five Counties area during the Neolithic and Bronze Age have been published or are forthcoming (e.g. Clarke 1960, Hedges 1980, Couchman 1980, Healy 1984, Lawson 1984, Hall and
    Coles 1994, Holgate 1996, Brown 1996, Ashwin 1996, Malim forthcoming, Pendleton forthcoming). As Bradley (1993) has noted it is important to be aware of links with other areas particularly along the North Sea coast and
    Thames Valley. Such contacts operated not only within Britain, but also with continental Europe. Important similarities exist between both sides of the North Sea during the Neolithic (e.g. Louwe Kooijmans 1976; 1980)
    and Bronze Age (Smith 1961, Butler 1963, Champion 1994).

    The Neolithic and Bronze Age form a convenient block of time for study, from about the 4th millennium BC to the first half of the 1st millennium BC. There are clear similarities and continuities which link the Late Neolithic
    and Early Bronze Age across the traditional divide of c. 2000BC. However, all such divisions are essentially arbitrary, and there are significant differences between aspects of the archaeology of the Early Neolithic and that
    of the Late Bronze Age. Similarly, consideration of the Neolithic and Bronze Age together, should not obscure the links between the Mesolithic/Neolithic and Bronze Age/Iron Age. For convenience four broad temporal divisions are followed below:- Early Neolithic 4,000–2,800BC, Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age 2,800–1500BC, Middle Bronze Age 1500–1000BC, Late Bronze Age 1,000–700BC.

    This brief account is supported by a lengthy bibliography which includes only works which are published or have a reasonable chance of being published
    within twelve months. The bibliography is not of course exhaustive, however, most of the works cited also have extensive bibliographies, which should be sufficient to guide the reader through the complexities of the available evidence.
