A couple of references which I found on a quick search of Amazon.com, based on the parameters you gave us:
The European Iron Age
, by John Collis.
The Bog People: Iron Age Man Preserved
, by P. V. Glob.
Surviving the Iron Age
, by P. L. Firstbrook. It chronicles an attempt by some modern researchers to recreate an Iron Age village. It's probably not a perfect recreation of what exactly did
happen, but it would appear to give some insights into the sorts of challenges these people faced.
, by Else Roesdahl. It's a bit outside what you gave us, but it should still be useful. It's also a good read; I actually own a copy of this one.
History, Myths, and Sacred Formulas of the Cherokees
, by James Mooney. Another one that I own, although I haven't gotten that far into it.
You might want to see if your local library has these or can get them via interlibrary loan. You might also want to ask the desk clerk about any archaeological / daily life books for the cultures you have in mind.
