The Bronze Age in Britain was a time of major social and cultural changes, reflected in the division of the landscape into field systems and the establishment of new belief systems and ritual practices. Several hypotheses have been advanced to explai... Read More

An accurate new method of calculating absolute magnitudes and K-corrections applied to the Sloan filter set (2014)
Journal Article
