L’âge du Fer, qui correspond à la seconde partie de la Protohistoire, s’étend de 800 avant notre ère à la fin du Ier siècle de notre ère.
Durant toute cette époque, les territoires correspondant à la France actuelle sont progressivement fréquentés par des populations qui possèdent l’écriture (les Grecs, les Romains). En revanche, les peuples locaux (Celtes, Gaulois, Ligures, Ibères…) écrivent peu, ou pas du tout. C’est donc l’archéologie qui fournit, en plus des quelques textes grecs ou latins, l’essentiel de nos connaissances sur ces groupes humains.
