The nature of Iron Age interactions along the southern coast of Britain and across the Channel/Manche is dicussed, and methods of recognising the key points in this network reviewed. Hengistbury Head and Mount Batten are well known, but Poole Harbour is another major site for such contact and trade. Evidence for Iron Age settlement and industry around Poole Harbour is reviewed, and the results of recent work suggesting sophisticated structures for controlling access into the Harbour are presented.
