About the Authors
  • This volume of Medieval European Coinage deals with the coinage of south Italy, Sicily and Sardinia between the mid-tenth century, when Part I ended, and the reign of Ferdinand the Catholic, on the threshold of the modern era. It thus covers very different coinages of the immediate pre-Norman period and those of the Norman, Hohenstaufen, Angevin and Aragonese dynasties, which in turn ruled part or the whole of the Mezzogiorno. The complex background to the history of this region makes its coinages among the most interesting of medieval Europe. They have rarely been studied together or in a single volume, and the work, which makes extensive use of written evidence and coin finds, will take its place as the standard work of reference for the foreseeable future.

    • Another interesting addition to Philip Grierson's magisterial, multi-volume history of medieval coinage
    • Covers the south of Italy and the islands of Sicily and Sardinia, and their ever-changing regimes and coinage
    • Accounts for the coinage of the period at a comprehensive scholarly level

    Review of the hardback: 'With its careful analysis and exhaustive bibliography, this volume will serve well as a handbook for the historian dealing with the economy of medieval southern Italy as well as for the numismatist classifying its coinage. When all of the volumes of the series are available, we will at least have the basis for a comprehensive view of the monetary development of medieval Europe.' Journal of European Economic History
