AbstractCoins, properly understood, stand in their own right as historical sources. This session seeks to show how coins can be used to understand political and economic boundaries in the world of King Cnut (d.1035); in England during the so-called Anarchy of Stephen's reign (1135-1154); and in the Plantagenet lands north of the Loire during the rule of Henry FitzEmpress (c.1150-1189).
