Medieval European Coinage: Volume 8, Britain and Ireland c.400-1066 (Hardcover): Rory Naismith Medieval European Coinage: Volume 8, Britain and Ireland c.400-1066 (Hardcover)

This volume of Medieval European Coinage traces the coinage and monetary history of Britain and Ireland in the early Middle Ages, offering the first major single-volume treatment of the subject in decades. It examines the period from the end of the Roman province of Britain in the fifth century to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 and the Anglo-Norman invasion of Ireland in 1169-71. The volume re-evaluates the complex seventh- and eighth-century English coinages, follows the evolution of the Anglo-Saxon coinage into one of the most sophisticated monetary systems in medieval Europe, and also covers the coins issued by Viking settlers in parts of England and Ireland. Bringing recent advances in historical and numismatic research to a wider audience, this landmark volume is supported by one of the most complete catalogues of the period illustrating the world-class collection of the Fitzwilliam Museum.

60 years of the UK's National Health Service and the NHS is treating more people than ever and the population is living longer, healthier lives. That's the good news. But what about the bad news? Most histories of medicine concentrate on 'who invented what' or on the lives of great medical figures. This history looks at the effect on medical science of politics, religion, money supply and social mores. Illustrated throughout by the very coins with which the the medical staff may have been paid this book is a reminder that medicine has never been free. Someone has to pay for it and in most developed countries that someone is, at least in part, the taxpayer. Are we getting value for money and would another system provide a better service? Having examined the history of State Medicine the book looks in depth at the problems facing the NHS and compares them with healthcare delivery in other developed nations from around the world. State medicine with all its warts! Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the NHS in a critical but balanced manner!

Studies of seals and sealing practices have traditionally investigated aspects of social, political, economic, and ideological systems in ancient societies throughout the Old World. Previously, scholarship has focused on description and documentation, chronology and dynastic histories, administrative function, iconography, and style. More recent studies have emphasized context, production and use, and increasingly, identity, gender, and the social lives of seals, their users, and the artisans who produced them. Using several methodological and theoretical perspectives, this volume presents up-to-date research on seals that is comparative in scope and focus. The cross-cultural and interdisciplinary approach advances our understanding of the significance of an important class of material culture of the ancient world. The volume will serve as an essential resource for scholars, students, and others interested in glyptic studies, seal production and use, and sealing practices in the Ancient Near East, Egypt, Ancient South Asia and the Aegean during the 4th-2nd Millennia BCE.

From the earliest of times, coins have been used by states or monarchs to communicate with people; Coins of England is therefore not only a reference book for collectors, but a fascinating snapshot of British history, illuminating its economics, technology, art, politics and religion. For the past few editions, the Standard Catalogue of British Coins has separated out the decimal issues under Elizabeth II from the pre-decimal coinages, with all decimal coinage since 1968 listed in a separate volume. The two volumes are available as independent publications for the first time in 2020. This volume of pre-decimal issues features every major coin type from the Celtic period up until 1968, arranged in chronological order and divided into metals under each reign, then into coinages, denominations, and varieties.

Seals were not just a functional device; they were used as tools of authentication, validation, and security - and provided a means for both individuals and corporate identites to represent themselves. The seals gathered here, in this lavishly-illustrated guide and catalogue (the first substantial volume to be devoted to the seals of a medieval urban community), are representative of those that survive from London from the period c.1050 - c.1300; they are drawn from some of the most important and significant collections, including the National Archives, the London Metropolitan Archives, and the archives of Saint Bartholomew's Hospital. Colour images of the seals themselves are accompanied by detailed descriptions, while an extensive index serves as an invaluable tool for the navigation of the complex personal nomenclature of the period. Dr John McEwan is a post-doctoral researcher at the Center for Digital Humanities at Saint Louis University, Missouri.

This volume of Medieval European Coinage is the first English-language survey to bring the latest research on the coinage of Spain and Portugal c.1000-1500 to an international audience. A major work of reference by leading numismatic experts, the volume provides an authoritative and up-to-date account of the coinages of Aragon, Catalonia, Castile, Leon, Navarre and Portugal, which have rarely been studied together. It considers how money circulated throughout the peninsula, offering new syntheses of the monetary history of the individual kingdoms and includes an extensive catalogue of the Aragonese, Castilian, Catalan, Leonese, Navarrese and Portuguese coins in the collection of the Fitzwilliam Museum. This major contribution to the field will be a valuable point of reference for the study of medieval history, numismatics and archaeology.

This book is a follow-up to the author's Coinage of Akbar: The Connoisseur's Choice published in 2005, and is the result of extensive research over a period of nearly eight years. On the basis of feedback received from the fellow coin collectors and scholars, whereas the classification of less common coins has been retained (that is S for scarce, R for rare, RR for still rarer; and RRR for extremely rare), the illustrations have been placed side by side with the description for easier reference. Jahangirs coins have always been most sought-after of the Mughal coins on account of their exquisite beauty and craftsmanship. As the demand has always out-stripped supply they have continued to be the forgers favourite. Keeping this in mind a chapter has been added on Forgeries. It should be of particular help to new collectors. The catalogue section of the book which covers 205 pages (57 for gold coins with 125 types,108 for silver with 226 types; and 40 pages for copper coins with 60 types) is profusely illustrated with over 600 coins. These represent not only all the famous museums and numismatic societies, but also the rarest of rare specimens from private collections all over the world. Many of these are being published for the first time; specially Jahangirs copper coins which represent as many as 47 mints. The authors investigative approach will be of interest to numismatic scholars and academicians in finding answers to some of their most baffling questions. For example, why did Jahangir issue a large proportion of his coins with the name of his father, but Akbar was conspicuously missing from his kalima type coins?; or, Why did he issue some coins with the exhortation Allah-Uh-Akbar with his own name missing ?, etc., etc. A foreword by Shailendra Bhandare, one of the most knowledgeable Mughal numismatic scholars of our times, adds considerably to the value of the monograph.

King Alfred's Coins - The Watlington Viking Hoard (Paperback): Gareth Williams King Alfred's Coins - The Watlington Viking Hoard (Paperback)

In October 2015, metal detectorist James Mather discovered an important Viking hoard near Watlington in South Oxfordshire. The hoard dates from the end of the 870s, a key moment in the struggle between Anglo-Saxons and Vikings for control of southern England. The Watlington hoard is a significant new source of information on that struggle, throwing new light not only on the conflict between Anglo-Saxon and Viking, but also on the changing relationship between the two great Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of Mercia and Wessex. This was to lead to the formation of a single united kingdom of England only a few years later. The hoard contains a mixture of Anglo-Saxon coins and Viking silver, and is in many ways a typical Viking hoard. However, its significance comes from the fact that it contains so many examples of previously rare coins belonging to Alfred the Great, king of Wessex (871-99) and his less well-known contemporary Ceolwulf II of Mercia (874-c.879). These coins provide a clearer understanding of the relationship between Alfred and Ceolwulf, and perhaps also of how the once great kingdom of Mercia came to be absorbed into the emerging kingdom of England by Alfred and his successors. A major fundraising campaign is being planned by the Ashmolean to secure this collection for the museum.
