Description
Coin use emerged in Iron Age Britain during a period of rapid change. Students will: (1) receive an introduction to eight specific Celtic coins; (2) explore the times, locations and tribes that produced them; and (3) get a glimpse into how the geopolitical events of the era influenced Celtic coinage. Students will place coin stickers onto a map in the handout to associate specific coins with the regions where they were produced.
