Sample text

This chapter is concerned with the physical dynamic of the Atlantic landscape. Then a consideration of the food producing strategies employed is carried out in an effort to determine the economic base of the Atlantic zone. Attention then turns to the sea and, after a brief discussion of the Atlantic maritime environment, finishes with a comment on the potential level of maritime technology in the area. The Atlantic landscape The coastline of the Atlantic seaboard is extremely long owing to its heavily indented nature and extends lineally some 2,500 kilometres from the Straits of Gibraltar to the Shetlands (Wooding 1996: 6).

Atlantic climate and environment in the first millennium BC Although much environmental work has been carried out across the Atlantic seaboard (Lamb 1977; Robinson 1990; Housley and Coles 2004), the climatic conditions of the first millennium BC remain only very generally understood. This is mainly because very few studies have been designed to specifically investigate Iron Age questions. Where such studies have taken place – on Dartmoor, south-west England (Simmons 1970; Silvester 1979), the Lairg Project in Sutherland (McCullagh and Tipping 1998), or the palynological study in Co.

E. compare the Armorican and south-west English peninsulas with the Highlands of Scotland). The coastline has been shaped by the enormous erosive forces of the sea etching out the younger, softer rocks over the millennia while leaving the older, more resilient rocks projecting out into the sea as jagged headlands. While erosion is a major factor in the current appearance of the Atlantic seaboard, the impact of rising sea levels (eustatic change) coupled with the localised warping and sinking of the coastline (isostatic change) over the last ten thousand years is responsible for the drowning of the lower reaches of river valleys throughout the zone, forming distinctive ria type coastlines with long winding indentations.
