Ancient British Coins by Chris Rudd

An easy catalogue of the iron age coins of Britain– the coins of the Pritani (c.150 BC-c.AD 45) – compiled by Elizabeth Cottam, Philip de Jersey, Chris Rudd and John Sills from the 45,000 Pritanic coins recorded by the Celtic Coin Index at the Institute of Archaeology, University of Oxford 

Never before have so many ancient British coins been so easy to identify, so easy to study, so easy to enjoy. Ancient British Coins catalogues 999 iron age coins, including 418 new types not shown by Van Arsdell in 1989. Ancient British Coins describes and dates them, gives up to six references for each, estimates their rarity and shows every coin twice actual size, so that its distinctive differences can be seen at a glance. ABC took 
ten years to produce, has 256 fact-packed pages and contains 4000 superb coin photos, plus 500 other illustrations, diagrams, tables and maps. 

Ancient British Coins is a picture book, not a lecture book. "ABC is a remarkable achievement" says Prof. Miranda Aldhouse-Green. "It manages to combine scholarship and accessible information in a volume whose every page is interesting and whose writing style makes it fun to use." ABC is a large hardback book (30 x 20 cm), light in style, heavy in weight (1.5 kgs) - "an indispensable aid to anyone wanting to identify British iron age coins" says Prof. Colin Haselgrove
