Money in Africa


Featuring 12 papers from the 'Money in Africa' conference held at the British Museum, this volume brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars to consider the role that money and trade plays in our understanding of African history. Ranging from the 10th century ad to the present day, the chapters cover the pre-colonial and colonial currencies of Africa, including copper, cowry shells, beads, manillas and gin; and coins, counterfeiting, banking and the symbolism of money in modern Africa.
