This chapter attempts to provide an archaeological understanding of Iron Age societies: one that takes neither power-structure nor sex-class for granted; and one that prioritizes the archaeological data. It does so by selectively addressing the ‘woman question’ in West European Iron Age studies, with a review of recent work in non-Mediterranean France providing context for the British material. It examines what the burial record of Hallstatt D to La Tène C France (c.600–150 BC) and early to middle Iron Age Britain (out of necessity focused on the latter: c.350–100 BC) says about sex and status in Iron Age societies.

Keywords:   British Iron Age societies, archaeology, sex, status, burial records, France
