50 Finds of Roman Coinage

Availability: Out of stock

Roman coinage represents the largest single category of object recorded through the PAS, with over 300,000 single finds in addition to several thousand hoards. This dataset, unparalleled anywhere else in the world, provides a unique perspective on the province of Roman Britain and its interaction with the larger Roman Empire. By exploring 50 key finds of Roman coinage it will be possible to shed light on all aspects of Roman Britain from the conquest in AD 43 through to the Roman withdrawal by c. AD 410. Unusually for a Roman numismatic dataset, the PAS examples provide wide coverage of the entire province, not just individual settlements, shedding light on early military activity, the development of the rural landscape, as well as the socio-political and cultural landscape of the province.

Approaching the material thematically, it will be possible to examine key elements such as religion, the economy, British ‘identity’, the ‘First Brexit’, and the archaeological application or implications of the PAS data.
