A partial overview of human/environment interactions and interrelations in Iron Age Britain (c. 800 BC-43 AD) is focused on evolving issues in the interpretation of the archaeological record, and on selected components of the environmental record. Both on-site and macroscale aspects are addressed. Some questions amenable to future collaborative work between environmentalists and archaeologists are proposed.
