Money and Power in Anglo-Saxon England: The Southern English Kingdoms, 757-865

Its nine chapters integrate historical and numismatic research to explore who made early medieval coinage, who used it and why. The currency emerges as a significant resource accessible across society and, through analysis of its production, circulation and use, the author shows that control over coinage could be a major asset. This control was guided as much by ideology as by economics and embraced several levels of power, from kings down to individual craftsmen. Thematic in approach, this innovative book offers an engaging, wide-ranging account of Anglo-Saxon coinage as a unique and revealing gauge for the interaction of society, economy and government.Download Rapidgator.nethttp://rapidgator.net/file/7de2cf378da109092a0dc6c1319abf34/6F_1107006627.pdf.htmlDownload Uploaded.nethttp://uploaded.net/file/m94vgcnf/6F_1107006627.pdf
