A History of Money from Ancient Times to the Present Day
A History of Money from Ancient Times to the Present Day is a fascinating collection of essays on the international origins, history, and theory of money. Essay titles include: Money in North American History, The Vikings and Money in England, Origins of Money and of Banking, and many more. You'll never look at money the same way again — this site is well worth a visit. This site was created by Roy Davies, a science librarian at the University of Exeter, UK, and the essays are drawn from his father's book A History of Money.
