This fully illustrated catalogue of coins of Edward the Confessor and Harold II in the superb collection of the Swedish Royal Coin Cabinet is a fundamental reference work for anyone studying or identifying late Anglo-Saxon coins. The volume catalogues and illustrates 1,280 coins of Edward the Confessor, the largest collection ever published, mostly from Swedish Viking-age finds. In an introductory chapter Dr Colman, a leading philologist, provides an analytical discussion of the moneyers' names. The volume includes a supplement to Part VI, by Mark Blackburn and Kenneth Jonsson, which publishes 72 additional Anglo-Norman coins from the Stockholm collection.
