Dr Anna Gannon, Affiliated Lecturer in the Department and Fellow of St Edmund's College, has published a major new study of early Anglo-Saxon coinage in the British Museum. 'British Museum Anglo-Saxon Coins I: Early Anglo-Saxon Gold and Continental Silver Coinage of the North Sea Area, c. 600-760' is the first catalogue of this part of the Museum's collection to be published since 1887, since when the collection has more than tripled in size. The book constitutes a substantial study of the coinage that circulated during the age of Bede, the Lindisfarne Gospels and Sutton Hoo, and which is widely celebrated for its historical significance and artistic accomplishment. The book is published by the British Museum Press.
