i think i mentioned that the article was in miranda green's book. i went
home and checked and although there is a chapter in green about celtic
farms and agriculture (it's by one of the archaeologists from butser's
farm and includes info on it) the article i was thinking of is in the
book "celtic consciousness" - a collection of papers from a university
of toronto symposium on celtic affairs.
also included in this book is a really neat article on everyone's
favourite Gaul ... Asterix!
