Land of the Iceni: The Iron Age in Northern East Anglia
Iron Age studies have traditionally focused on Wessex, with its imposing hill forts, or on the Hertfordshire/Essex area, with its late Iron Age oppida
and wealthy burials. In contrast, the 'land of the Iceni' - Norfolk, the northern part of Suffolk, and north-eastern Cambridgeshire - has, until recently, languished in obscurity. But excavation, fieldwork and the analysis of artefacts are now casting new light on the later prehistory of the neglected region.
Much of the research is presented here for the first time. Coinage, the landscape, the character of settlement and the agrarian economy are among the many subjects discussed by a distinguished collection of archaeologists and edited by John Davies and Tom Williamson. Together these essays provide the basis for a thoroughgoing re-evaluation of the Iceni and their territory.

The book is subtitled 'A Guide to the County's Companies and their Historical Records'. For those interested in researching the history of a company, in industrial archaeology, textile design and fashion, changing technology, or simply finding out about the working life of a family member, these records offer a mine of information.
Business records are among the most under-utilised of archives, yet they represent some of the richest sources available to historians. The records of Suffolk companies, those deposited in the county's three record office, in archives elsewhere, or held privately, are no exception. The book does not attempt to provide a comprehensive list, but it does represent a wide set of sources available from the manufacturing industries.
