Accessible to archaeological experts and students alike, PJ Casey’s Roman Coinage in Britain is a fascinating investigation of the Roman Empire’s economic presence in Britain. Drawing from a wealth of archaeological sources, this book places Roman coinage in its rightful economic and political context to better understand the chronology and lives of those who used it. Boasting over a hundred images of exquisitely preserved coins, many of them life-sized, Casey’s study is a must for coin collectors, amateur archaeologists and anyone with an interest in ancient Roman Britain.
