Gordon Childe, was under rigorous scrutiny from British prehistorians, who still nevertheless regarded the Arras culture of eastern Yorkshire and the Belgic cemeteries of south-eastern Britain as the product of immigrants from continental Europe.

Sympathetic to the idea of population mobility as one mechanism for cultural innovation, as widely recognized historically, it nevertheless attempted a critical re-appraisal of the southern British Iron Age in its continental context.

Subsequent fashion in later prehistoric studies has favoured economic, social and cognitive approaches, and the cultural-historical framework has largely been superseded. Routine use of radiocarbon dating and other science-based applications, and new field data resulting from developer-led archaeology have revolutionized understanding of the British Iron Age, and once again raised issues of its relationship to continental Europe.
