Lowland Zone

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference


A term popularized in archaeological circles in Britain by Cyril Fox from the 1930s onwards to refer to the lowland regions of the south and east of the British Isles that are characterized by rather different kinds of archaeology from those found in the north and west. This is partly a product of geography, but this, Fox argued, had an effect on the human populations, who had many ideas imposed on them because of their proximity to the European mainland and who tended to be replaced as a result of migrations and colonization. See also Highland Zone.
