520 8  Silver, Butter, Cloth advances current debates about the 
       nature and complexity of Viking economic systems. It 
       explores how silver and other commodities were used in 
       monetary and social economies across the Scandinavian 
       world of the Viking Age (c. 800-1100 AD) before and 
       alongside the wide scale introduction of coinage. Taking a
       multi-disciplinary approach that unites archaeological, 
       numismatic, and metallurgical analyses, Kershaw and 
       Williams examine the uses and sources of silver in both 
       monetary and social transactions, addressing topics such 
       as silver fragmentation, hoarding, and coin production and
       re-use. Uniquely, it also goes beyond silver, giving the 
       first detailed consideration of the monetary role of 
       butter, cloth, and gold in the Viking economy. (Indeed, it
       is instrumental in developing methodologies to identify 
       such commodity monies in the archaeological record.) The 
       use of silver and other commodities within Viking 
       economies is a dynamic field of study, fuelled by 
       important recent discoveries across the Viking world. The 
       14 contributions to this book, by a truly international 
       group of scholars, draw on newly available archaeological 
       data from eastern Europe, Scandinavia, the North Atlantic,
       and the British Isles and Ireland, to present the latest 
       original research. Together, they deepen understanding of 
       Viking monetary and social economies and advance0new 
       definitions of 'economy', 'currency', and 'value' in the 
       ninth to eleventh centuries
