In this book, Rainer Pudill draws on his own experience as a collector - and this new knowledge - to present the latest thinking and facts on the Celts and their coins. The Celts left no written records and the only historical accounts we have of them derive mainly from Roman writers. This makes Archaeological finds all the more important, and Celtic coins in particular unique as sources of information. As little as 30 years ago many mysteries - and misconceptions - still existed as to the Celtic tribes of Britain and their Kings. Thanks to metal detecting finds and the Celtic coin index, far more is now known.
