Comprehensive indexes of mints and moneyers

Completes the two-part catalogue of Anglo-Saxon and British medieval coins (up to 1279) in Norwegian Collections

  • Carolingian Francia, c.700-900

  • Numismatics and charters

I work on early medieval history, focusing especially upon ninth-century Francia and the contribution made by the charter evidence, and on the coinage evidence for Scandinavia in the Viking age. I have recently completed the Anglo-Saxon Coins in Norway project, publishing 4230 coins and fragments of Anglo-Saxon and later English and Scottish to 1279 in Norwegian museums. I am General Editor of the Medieval European Coinage Project. This British Academy Research Project, based at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, is publishing a history of European coinage c.400-1500 in 20 volumes (for details, see the project website at http://www.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/research/mec). 


I would be willing to hear from potential Masters students looking at Early Medieval History, especially Carolingian Francia and Scandinavia in the Viking age.
