Joseph Déchelette, (1862-1914) was a French archaeologist and author of this important work covering the entire field of the prehistory of France. With his uncle, J.-G. Bulliot, Déchelette excavated Gallic ruins at Mont Beuvray and described his findings in L’Oppidum de Bibracte. He published 120 books and articles, but his reputation rests on his Manuel. Volume I includes bibliographic information and abbreviations, prehistoric archeology, a biblographical list of the caves of France, and a bibliographic list of earth stations and workshops of Neolithic France. Volume II includes Celtic or protohistoric archeology, the Bronze Age, and early Iron Age or Hallstatt era. The final volume in this series, which is not included with this set, was completed by Albert Grenier after Déchelette’s death early in World War I.?Additional shipping for overses orders will be required for this heavy set .
