800 BC - 55 BC
Members of Earlyworks do have an interest in the British iron age, more specifically the late iron age (La Tene III) around the time of Claudius' 43AD invasion, and the century after.
East Yorkshire has one of highest concentrations of iron age sword finds in the country, with those at Kilham, Rudston and Wetwang the most famous.
East Yorkshire was home to the Parisi tribe which archaeologists call the Arras Culture. It takes its name from the cemetery site of Arras near Market Weighton in the East Riding of Yorkshire, which was discovered in the 19th century. The culture is defined by cart or chariot burials, which are uncommon outside East Yorkshire in the United Kingdom, but are found in continental Europe, and show some similarities with those of the La Tène culture.
The Brigantes were a collection of tribes, a large confederacy, that covered modern-day Yorkshire and parts of Northumbria, and if we weren't members of the Parisi, most likely we would have been proud tribesmen of this belligerent kingdom! Under their chief Venutius in the 60s and 70s, the Brigantes fought to halt the Roman advance north, unlike the Parisi, which seems to have accepted Roman rule in exchange for protection from the more warlike Brigantes.
