Romano-British Coin Hoardsby Richard Abdy
Synopses & Reviews
Britain's visible Roman remains are lacking in impressive monuments such as the temples, arches and amphitheatres found in France and Italy. Yet the best testament to Britain's participation in Graeco-Roman civilisation is its 'hidden' monuments: spectacular hoards of household valuables such as jewellery, precious-metal table utensils or decorations and also the concern of this book rich hoards of gold, silver and bronze coins. Many such hoards are hidden no longer, as visits to numerous museums will quickly show. This book provides an introduction to Romano-British coin hoards and places major discoveries, new and old, in the story of the Roman monetary system in Britannia.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 71) and index.
