British Iron Age Coins in the British Museum

Front Cover
Trustees of the British Museum, 1996 - Coin hoards - 246 pages
The British Museum's unrivalled collection of over 4,500 pieces, minted at the end of the iron Age in the first century BC until immediately before the Roman invasion of Britain in AD 43, is published for the first time in this comprehensive catalogue. A full listing of the coins is provided, from the earliest British gold and silver of the mid-first century BC to the so-called dynastic issues in the central part of Britain and the distinctive regional issues of the peripheral coin-using areas. Indices are provided for the inscriptions and hoards and for the vast range of symbols which appear on the coins. An extensive bibliography and concordance is included and each piece is illustrated.
