Quick Reference


Middle and later Iron Age culture in eastern Yorkshire, distinguished by its use of square‐ditched as well as circular‐ditched barrows, and among richer graves the practice of burying a two‐wheeled cart with the dead, reminiscent of the funerary practices of earlier La Tène groups in Champagne. While it is generally agreed that the culture reflects an intrusive movement from across the Channel, the chronology and exact region of its origins are debatable. The later Iron Age tribe in the region was known to the Romans as the Parisi.
