2.8 Future Research Recommendations

  1. Existing archival and artefactual collections provide a valuable resource that would be rewarding to exploit, especially research into antiquarian work. The exploration of the social networks of the early archaeologists, tracing influences and the development of ideas would help enrich and clarify current understandings of the Iron Age.
  2. Identifying current archaeologists (and their archives), from whom more recent oral history could be captured, would also provide a richly important potential source of information
