Over the centuries Britain's soil has yielded countless spectacular hoards of ancient coins and other artefacts, affording us priceless insights into our ancestors' lives – and it is not only such large finds that await discovery but also many thousands of individual pieces. Wonderfully, discoveries both minor and momentous are frequently made not by teams of professionals but by amateur archaeologists and metal-detector enthusiasts, for whom this book is intended as a helpful companion. It provides a catalogue of commonly encountered coins, dating from ancient times until the modern day, explaining their historical context, how they might have come to be lost and where they may be found today.

Very informative with plenty of details on coinage finds with plenty of photos to help with identifying finds. It can get a little heavy in parts but all in all a worthwhile book.

Fantastic book

A thin book but plenty for a beginner. Lots of lovely clear pictures and information. It was bought for someone else with a hobby in coin collecting but as I looked at it I became interested too! Great little book.
