The late Iron Age saw sizeable changes in human activity. Thomas Charles-Edwards coined the phrase "Irish Dark Age" to refer to a period of apparent economic and cultural stagnation in late prehistoric Ireland, lasting from c. 100 BC to c. AD 300. He used the phrase to describe a gap in the archaeological record coinciding with the Roman Empire in Britain and continental Europe. Charles-Edwards notes the lack of continuity between Ptolemy's writings on the peoples of second-century Ireland and writings in ogham in the fifth century. He suggested that the decrease in agricultural productivity might be due to a large-scale export of slaves to Roman Britain.
The kit contains 5 sprues of plastic Dark Age Irish warrior parts. Each sprue has 5 different bodies, 7 different heads, 5 large round shields, 5 bucklers, 3 different Irish cloaks, 4 spear arms, plus all the arms you need including one holding a short-sword, one with a hand-axe, a set of arms to use with the included Dane-axe plus a couple of extra axes and a short-sword in scabbard. These make up 25 figures in a wide variety of poses.
