Coinages and Society in Britain and Gaul: some current problems

Barry Cunliffe (editor)

CBA Research Report No 38 (1981)

ISBN 0 906780 04 7


Title page of report 38

The Oxford Department of External Studies had, in 1980, held three Iron Age conferences each designed to examine the most recent British work against its Continental background. The first, which took place in October 1975, was concerned with oppida and the beginnings of urbanisation in barbarian Europe; the second, in October 1977, dealt with Lowland Iron Age communities in Europe, while the third, held in October 1978, covered the theme of early coinage and society in Britain and Gaul. It is a selection of the papers presented at this last, suitably augmented, which forms the basis of the present volume.
