MEC Vol. 6. The Iberian Peninsula
Crusafont, M., Balaguer, A. M. & Grierson, P. Medieval European Coinage Volume 6. The Iberian Peninsula. 2013. 929 pages, 136 b/w plates, 7 maps, 41 tables. Casebound, jacket. This long awaited volume of Medieval European Coinage, is the first English-language survey to bring the latest research on the coinage of Spain and Portugal c.1000–1500 to an international audience. A major work of reference by leading numismatic experts, the volume provides an authoritative and up-to-date account of the coinages of Aragon, Catalonia, Castile, Léon, Navarre and Portugal, which have rarely been studied together. It considers how money circulated throughout the peninsula, offering new syntheses of the monetary history of the individual kingdoms and includes an extensive catalogue of the Aragonese, Castilian, Catalan, Leonese, Navarrese and Portuguese coins in the collection of the Fitzwilliam Museum. This major contribution to the field will be a valuable point of reference for the study of medieval history, numismatics and archaeology.
