Abstract

This paper presents an overview of some recent attempts to provide a theoretical framework for both the location and interpretation of the growing number of late prehistoric and Romano-Bitish rural sites within the region centred around the theme of marginality.It uses the growing body of archaeological evidence for the period, particularly research undertaken over the last 15 years, to look at the ssues of climatic and soial marginality. The emerging debate on the rural settlement of these periods is focussed on the social hierarchy and material culture of the area and whether this was distinctive both before and after the Roman conquest.
