Recensies en Artikelen

"The volume is clearly structured with very little repetitive information. Roymans and Scheers’ introduction provides regional background and argues for adjustments to the dating of Late Iron Age gold emissions. They also present a convincing argument for identifying the fort at Thuin as the oppidum of the Aduatuci and therefore for the burial of the Thuin hoard being contemporary with Caesar’s invasions. They stress that we will never fully understand the reasons for deposition of a hoard, be it safekeeping or a gift to the gods, but that these two motivations cannot always be viewed as exclusive." - Rachel Wilkinson, University of Leicester (UK).

“This groundbreaking study brings together new evidence from eight Iron Age coin hoards of mid first century BC date found in Belgium and the Netherlands in recent years. Rigorous typological and scientific analysis of the hoards has helped transform our understanding of Iron Age coin production in this region. The thought-provoking assessment of the associated archaeological evidence throws new light on power relations within the societies that used these coins, and on the Roman conquest of northern Gaul. In combining these different strands, this is a book that sets new standards for future publication in this field.” - Colin Haselgrove, School of Archaeology and History, University of Leicester (UK).

Late Iron Age Gold Hoards from the Low Countries and the Caesarian Conquest of Northern Gaul

Dit boek presenteert acht nieuwe Keltische goudverzamelingen uit het zuiden van Nederland en België, bestaande uit gouden munten en in diverse gevallen ook gouden ornamenten. De studie van deze verzamelingen biedt een schat aan nieuwe informatie over de archeologische context waarin ze werden gevonden, over de datering van de vele muntsoorten en sieraden en over de maatschappelijke rol van goud in de pre-Romeinse samenleving. Een belangrijk boek voor archeologen, munt- en penningdeskundigen en historici.
