Joseph Déchelette (portrait by Albert Dawant)


French archaeologist whose first interest was in the iron age and in early Rome. He became best known as a systemizer, producing an orderly method of research into the archeological chaos of the times. His early work on Gallo-Roman Decorated Ceramic Vessels, two volumes, 1904, is still a classic. His great work was "Prehistory" in five volumes, 1908 to 1915. He died on 8 October 1914 in L'Aisne, France.
