Farming In The Iron Age is part of the Cambridge Introduction To The History of Mankind series; this series is geared to younger readers and as such is rather short and straight forward.

That being said it is not short on detail or interest; it contains a variety of information on early farming

techniques from the Iron Age as well as some botanical information which I have actually not found in other books I have read such as details on the food crop Melde (chenopodium album).

Overall, a dated & short but still interesting 1970s look into Iron Age farming.
