Abstract:
Ten papers stem from a conference in October 1978. The first is on early Greek coinage (K Rutter, 1-9), the second on the relation between coinage and state development in Central Gaul (D Nash, 10-17). S Scheers (18-23) deals with the origins of coinage in Belgic Gaul and its evolution after the Gallic War. R Reece (24-8) has collected New Testament and other references which show how the Roman world used coinage, and discusses how fast the use of Roman coins spread from Rome. B Cunliffe (29-39), discussing money and society in pre-Roman Britain, uses coin maps to demonstrate the shakey basis of historical assumptions for the period from 120 BC. J P C Kent (40-2) examines the appearance of coinage in Britain with particular reference to interrelated political and economic events. The unsatisfactory data underlying all our coin maps are pointed to by W Rodwell (43-52), analysing the Essex situation in detail. J Collis (53-5) argues the virtues of socioeconomic versus historical approaches to coinage, insisting on the need for testable models; a response comes from Rodwell (56). Finally, C Haselgrove and J Collis (57-61) examine the need for and possibility of establishing a computer-based information retrieval scheme for Iron Age coins in Britain (9500 provenances), and a series of thirty-one maps shows the known distribution of coins by type at 1978.
