[Richard Reece] -- This book enables the reader interested in the Romans and archaeology to understand the place of coinage in Roman Britain and so deepen their understanding of Roman Britain as a whole. In Britain most coins in museums and collections come from hoards (coins deposited in a group) or from coins found singly during excavation or walking over fields.
