The warm period lasted until at least the fifth century AD (Turner 1981: 261). From c.

The spirit of the diffusionist period – its reversal of contemporary geographers’ views – can be summed up by the following quote from E. G. Bowen, one of the most outspoken supporters of the ‘western seaways’: For the student of early western cultures no longer does the sea divide and the land unite; on the contrary, the seas unite the lands around their shores, while the mountains and the boglands of inland territories divide one culture from another. (Bowen 1970: 14) The use of terminology such as ‘western seaways’ and ‘western sealanes’ is avoided in this book because it implies a desire to re-construct the actual routes and paths of Atlantic contact.

However, due mainly to its geographical location, the Atlantic has consistently been given a peripheral role in these models of later prehistoric Europe (cf. Sherratt 1993a; Frankenstein 1994; Kristiansen 1994; Cunliffe 1995b; Ruíz-Gálvez 1995; Mederos Martín 1996: 111–12). In its purest form ‘world systems’ analysis is an economic examination of the exchange of bulk food products for manufactured goods taking place between independent political entities at different levels of social organisation and development in what has been termed a classic ‘core-periphery’ relationship (Wallerstein 1974).
