Dude really danced around the subject of ramparts. They serve to define the boundary of the community within it. It lets outsiders know that they are approaching and stepping onto someone else's territory when they see those huge ramparts and maybe a few large local tribesmen standing watch. The ramparts can also protect against dangerous wildlife and if big enough, might serve as a weather break - they are on top of a big honking hill. Ramparts don't have to be military to be protective.
@richardwheeler6115 2 aylar önce
A rampart may do all those things, but a rampart is strictly a military device. If it were built to do something else it would not be a rampart.

It sucks too because not only is the US an amazing place for paleontology, there used to be an amazing variety of native people whose lives and heritage have been completely disrupted and destroyed. I wish there was a way we could work with existing tribes to trace back their heritage and treat their archaeological sights with the respect that they deserve. Although it is important to mention that there are a number of native peoples who have these sights and (understandably) absolutely do not want outsiders messing with them. So it's better to do it with the full permission from the people you're researching

To compare, I just watched a show last night where they were digging before a high speed train goes in, at a site where people were buried with small "buckets" beside them, and some of the "buckets" looked very much like the drinking vessel shown here at 23:08. They didn't have handles on the side, but on the top like a bucket. Still, it makes me think that maybe there was some connection. At least one of them was made with wood, and metal rings around it like this one. Some were hammered metal with designs.

One thing to consider is sea level change over the time period of 2000 yrs is much different in the southern part of Great Britain than in the northern part. When the glaciers covered the northern part of the GB island, they weighted that part down tilting the small sub-plate that is Great Britain and Ireland so that the southern part rose up while the northern part sank down. When the glacier melted the northern part (the hinge line is somewhere around Newcastle) rose back up again and the souther part sank down. (Isostatic readjustment). The average sea level rise is about 3 ml/yr. In the the south of England sea level is rising about 8 ml/yr. This rate of sea level rise drowned the estuaries of the rivers like the Thames, the Blackwater and the River Frome forming Pool Harbour. So 2000 yrs ago Green Island would have been about 16 m higher above sea level. This might have made it bigger and the distance to shore shorter and therefore a more attractive site for a settlement.
@debswan5750 21 gün önce
Wait, sea level RISE means island was lower relative to sea level, meaning sea was closer. Ramparts would have been sea storm protection along with other advantages, I would have thought?

I enjoy this one much, a "hill fort" is a fortified village more often than not, a protected home base for the people of that region and area, if and when there happened to be any attacks from abroad then they would have a place much more safe than if it was not protected. it is no more complicated than that.
@k-matsu 11 aylar önce
7:30 I think he is really on to something. Certainly as tribal groups began to bump up against each other they would start to "compete" ... and that might occasionally lead to violence. Im sure the defensive military value of hillforts was one reason why they started to develop. But I think they also took on a quality similar to cathedrals in medieval France. Each local group felt that they had to demonstrate the importance of their own "tribe" by building one. You probably didnt expect your neighbours to try to attack you if you DIDNT have one (after all, while pre-Roman Celtic society did have some intertribal war, it was pretty small-scale and rarely involved more than one or two raids/counterraids). But at the same time, having a hillfort was an essential way to make sure your neighbors respected you. The bigger it was, the more respect you could command. Defense in times of war was only a secondary (albeit important) function. The main function was simply to advertise your local pride.
@Sinsteel 11 aylar önce
If you don't have something to mark your territory, then how is it yours? What's the difference between you and your neighbours? Earthworks like this can be seen from everywhere in the territory, and serve as a locus, a reminder of who this area belongs to, and a constant landmark. So they don't just command the territory, they stamp ownership and belonging on it. Also, these tribes didn't just rub against one another, the tribes of Europe from the neolithic onwards were constantly fighting one another for territory - which is how they invented chainmail, the "griptongue" sword, the "Gallic" helmet used by Roman legions, and many other military technologies that the rest of the world later copied or adopted. These things are not developed as a result of a peaceful lifestyle. Celtic culture was boastful and heroic - communal feasts with tellings of heroic feats, wrestling, challenges between heroes, duels, honour. We're talking about a warrior elite. Don't make the mistake of thinking we're talking about small little groups here, some tribes fielded upwards of 100,000 fully armed, blooded warriors when they fought the Romans for instance.

After watching Time team for years, I take umbrage to the portrayal of Archaeologists in Graham Hancocks Netflix fanfic. He paints a picture of bureaucratic conspiritorial academics, but I see Mick Aston, Carenza Lewis, Francis Pryor, Raksha Dave, Phil Harding et al. The idea that archeologists refuse to dig the holes he wants probably has more to do the lack of funding than a refusal to confirm his opinions. If he really wanted to 'find the truth' he could fund a dig rather than just critique other peoples work, and make conclusions from their toil. Here's to the trowels of the soil scrapers, who make possible the little evidence of our past that we have. We could advance society from studying the lessons of history. its a shame we don't.

With all the respect to Mick, i think he was wrong in his assessment that smiths would've lost their "charm" by that time. I mean, we have to consider that the church, in their blatant attempt to curtail any kind of education that might've liberated the 'flock' from under their control, culled all kinds of science except for a few vital jobs, like... smiths. They were always on the edge of the profane, and they always had knowledge that surpassed most other's. Let's not forget that aspect. Not everyone can be a smith, something that still holds today despite the wide proliferation of knowledge via the internet.

I like how they're complaining about how difficult it was to get copper when they literally picked it up out of the ground, knocked it off the rock with a stone tool and they had it...not exactly complicated to refine a metal. Now try create arsenical bronze by guessing the recipe. I'll wait.

At 26.29 they find a stone that is said to prove that the people were grinding corn in the iron age. There was no corn in Britain in the iron age. Corn was brought to Europe in 1493 by Columbus.
@ariannedechateaumichel7777 4 aylar önce
In the UK, they use the term "corn" to mean "grain." Here in the US, we used to use the term that way as well, until we decided to just use that term for the grain that was brought back to Europe by Spanish explorers. In Europe and much of the rest of the world, the grain we call "corn" is called "maize" or something similar. You can still see echoes of the more generic definition of "corn" in terms like "peppercorns" and "corned beef."

Oh dear, they dug that woman's lawn up, only to find vintage bottles. She was nice about it though, you could tell by the tone in her voice she would rather have not had that done.

So, when casting bronze in the Iron Age, they used . . . Wax? The lost wax process in Iron Age Wales seems doubtful . . . Later, the Romans may have introduced it . . .?
