Coins and Power in Late Iron Age Britain (New Studies in Archaeology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book deals with Britain in the centuries immediately before the Roman conquest: a period when the first individuals appeared in British history, and when a series of dynasties emerged to take control of much of Southern Britain. Combining archaeological, literary and numismatic evidence, it paints a vivid picture of how people in Late Iron Age Britain reacted to the changing world around them, and how rulers bolstered their power through use of imagery on coins, myths, language, and material culture. It includes illustrations of 246 Iron Age coins and a separate coin index.

Synopsis:

This book examines the background to the first individuals in British history.
