Windows into a Tribal World: Iron Age Coins – Dr Rodney Scarle
Rodney is a member of the Longstanton and District Heritage Society, whose interest in early coinage and what they can tell us about the people who used them was stimulated by his interest in local archaeology. Over time he has built up quite an interesting and varied collection of coins and considerable expertise in them.
