In 1948, Humphrey Sutherland published Anglo-Saxon Gold Coinage, the earliest truly comprehensive catalogue of the subject matter, including the first full description of the Anglo-Saxon coins in the Crondall hoard of 1828.
There has been no complete, illustrated catalogue since. Such is the glacial rate of numismatic progress on early gold.
However, in the digital era advancement is accelerating. With the increasing popularity of metal-detection in recent decades, more finds have surfaced. The Portable Antiquities Scheme has facilitated recording and public access. Popular metal detection websites and magazines have enabled improved access to information. Auction catalogues have broadcast high resolution images and recent results have obliterated previous records.
In an attempt to make identification swifter and more reliable, and readily eliminate bogus coins, the author of the ground-breaking Sceatta List now complements that work with a prequel – a complete and beautifully illustrated account of all recorded early English gold coinage – over 80 different varieties.
This compact volume is essential for all detectorists, field liaison officers, curators, scholars, dealers, auction cataloguers and collectors.
