This chapter examines ways of considering landscapes, settlements, and significant places in the late Iron Age and the development of Roman urbanism in North-west Europe. It is organized into two parts. The first section analyses an example of how early studies, and the social contexts in which they were written, have influenced the research agenda which remains strong in archaeological research. It considers the thoughts and work of the historian Edward Gibbon (1737–94). The second section examines new perspectives emerging from detailed landscape studies focused on the later Iron Age.

Keywords:   late Iron Age, Roman urbanism, Northwest Europe, landscapes, settlements, Edward Gibbon
