Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the history and developments in the study of medieval numismatics in Great Britain during the twentieth century. It explains that during the first three decades of the century there was not much progress in numismatics because the funding of the British Academy was too small for it to undertake major publishing projects. After 1930, the Academy continued to provide assistance to numismatists and it helped numismatics come into the twenty-first century by promoting the use of new technology.
