New Studies in Archaeology. 22 tables - - Volume 12 Issue 1 - John Collis. Across Iron Age Europe the human head carried symbolic associations with power, fertility status, gender, and more. Evidence for the removal, curation, and display of heads ranges from classical literary references to iconography and skeletal remains. This book demonstrates instead how headhunting and head-veneration were practised across a range of diverse and fragmented Iron Age societies.

Cambridge University Press, 6 Tem 2000 - 249 sayfa. Cunobelin, Shakespeare's Cymbeline, ruled much of south-east Britain in the years before Claudius' legions arrived, creating the Roman province of Britannia. But what do we know of him and his rule, and that of competing dynasties in south-east Britain? This book examines the background to these, the first individuals in British history.

This book deals with Britain in the centuries immediately before the Roman conquest: a period when the first individuals appeared in British history, and when a series of dynasties emerged to take control of much of Southern Britain. Combining archaeological, literary and numismatic evidence, it paints a vivid picture of how people in Late Iron Age Britain reacted to the changing world around them, and how rulers bolstered their power through use of imagery on coins, myths, language, and material culture. It includes illustrations of 246 Iron Age coins and a separate coin index.

We are blessed to have a plethora of extant Roman literature and archeology (including coinage) from the transitional period from Republic to Empire. This same period covers the earliest Briton coinage until its replacement by Claudius’ province of Britannia. Along with these, Creighton ties in topics such as druids and the Juban dynasty which are often omitted from such discussions or seen as purely ancillary. He also bravely presents several of his own theories and interpretations. Combing all these topics helps fill the voids in our knowledge of the island of Great Britain between the invasions of Julius Caesar and Claudius.

Notes for numismatists: Gold coinage dominates discussions, specifically in the early chapters of the book. Silvers and bronzes are better represented in later chapters of the book. Potin is little mentioned. Types from before circa 50 BCE and the advent of legends on coins are summarized in conventional manners. However types newer than circa 50 BCE are explored in wonderful detail.

Notes for those who live outside of Great Britain: Have a map or web browser handy, to identify or remind you of the location of named towns, counties and archaeological sites.

Overall the best book I have read in quite a while. I have heard comments about it being slightly out of date; 2000 is the true copyright even if reprinted at a latter date. Don’t let this fact prevent you from reading the book yourself. Remember this is a scholarly yet well narrated 200+ page book covering a relatively specific time period and number of topics. Newer and likely briefer research can be pursued as follow up should you feel the need.

I will admit up front that I haven't yet read this book, so I can't comment on whether it is good, bad, or indifferent. But I thought someone else might want to know that this book is actually 10 years old. That's why I only gave it three stars. The 2009 copyright is for a reissue of the paperback, which isn't indicated anywhere on Amazon's page for the book. I was pretty annoyed when I received the book and found out its copyright, since I thought it had just come out and would be something new in Iron Age coin studies. Since I might not get around to reading it for while, and since I would like to have known before I bought it when it was written, I thought I'd post this. We'll see if it stays up; it actually violates the rules of Amazon reviews, so they would be fair not to post it. But I thought I'd give it a try. When I do read the book, I'll add a comment!
