About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Entirely original and only synthesis of late Iron Age Britain
    • No other book pulls together the evidence on early British coinage in an accessible way, and to date all information is in articles, theses or heavyweight catalogues
    • Illustrations of 246 Iron Age coins and separate coin index will be useful resource for numismatists
