This book has discussed how much changing cultural patterns in the past and present have influenced scholarly reconstructions of ancient paganism. It also describes the extent to which a wide-ranging study enabled useful comparisons to be made between approaches to the study of religious activity in different periods. This conclusion extends the discussion and attempts to answer the two remaining questions prefaced in this book: whether it is possible to have an archaeology or a history of ancient British religions, and where the limits of relativism lie in the interpretation of data.

Keywords:   cultural patterns, paganism, religious activity, religions, relativism
