Britain and the Celtic Iron Age by Simon James and Valery Rigby

The people who lived in Britain during the Iron Age, in the centuries preceding the Roman invasion, are often called 'Celtic'. Celts are seen as a family of European peoples, speaking related languages and sharing much in common, from art to aspects of religion and social organisation. Was the British Iron Age part of this supposed uniform, Celtic world, or was it something much more distinctive, complex, strange and fascinating than we have been led to believe? A mass of new information and research is prompting fundamental reappraisals of the island's prehistory, in ways which challenge many cherished ideas - not least that of a familiar 'Celtic' past.

Drawing on recent research and discoveries, and on the wealth of archaeological evidence in the British Museum and elsewhere, the authors offer a fresh and lively survey of the life, art, and culture of Iron age Britons.

Card covers, 96 pages, superbly illustrated throughout with 44 colour and 52 black and white illustrations.

Gloves for handling

Our friends at Lighthouse have designed a glove especially for handling coins. In between the ridges and valleys of your fingerprints there are acids. If these come into contact with the surface of the coins, this can leave your fingerprint indelibly etched into the surface of the coin. The real problem is that it can take years for this ‘fingerprint’ to appear. They have designed lightweight cotton gloves that are easy to wear and still protect your coins from damage due to handling.
