Ken Peters forwarded this release about his new book on the counterfeit coins of Roman Britain.
The author Ken Peters has, after years of tracking down, sifting, extracting, assembling and amalgamating, produced a one-stop centre of information on all aspects of coin counterfeiting in Roman Britain.
The basic arrangement is chronological, following the useful, generally accepted twenty-one periods of Roman Britain devised by Richard Reece.
In the book, the story of Roman counterfeiting is followed by a detailed and extensive Bibliography, plus descriptions and location references for hundreds of specific Roman counterfeits, many illustrated. The Bibliography is enhanced by small references being quoted in full, saving the need to seek them out.
Other featured sections include Roman Coin Hoards with counterfeit elements, Roman counterfeits in British Museums, coiners and their fakes, ancient laws, identifying counterfeits, etc.
COUNTERFEIT COINS OF ROMAN BRITAIN comprises two hundred A4 pages of concentrated information, precisely arranged for maximum accessibility – and all for just £25 - undoubted value for money.
Available from Envoy Publicity, 8 Kings Road, Biggin Hill, Kent, TN16 3XU, England @ £25 + £2.50 p&p (England); £5 Europe; £12 rest of the world.
