Item description for Coinage and History in the North Sea World, C. 500-1250: Essays in Honour of Marion Archibald (The Northern World, V. 19) by Barrie Cook, Gareth Williams & Marion Archibald...
This is a themed volume of 28 papers, written in honour of Marion Archibald. It considers the role of coinage in northern Europe from the fall of the Western Roman Empire to the early thirteenth century. Although the focus of the volume is the coinage itself, the majority of the papers consider coinage in its historical and/or archaeological context.
A recurrent theme of the volume is the movement of coinage across the English Channel and the North Sea and beyond. Particular areas of focus include the importation and use of money in early Anglo-Saxon England; movement, hoarding and secondary treatment of coinage during the Viking Age; and monetary contacts between England and her neighbours under the Normans and Angevins.
The papers in this book provide an important range of perspectives in current numismatic research, and will provide a valuable resource for scholars in a variety of disciplines with interests in the economy and society in northern Europe, c. 500-1250.
