Kevin Hoffman, Ph.D. student in History, explores the history of English coinage through 1066, the year of the Norman Conquest that marked the end of the Anglo-Saxon period. Drawing on his research on Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Viking coins, Hoffman addresses early Celtic coinage, Roman material, and the final issues of Anglo-Saxon coinage in 1066.
