This session is organised as part of the research project on the pre-modern monetary system in Western Eurasia, funded by Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. Four speakers in this session will focus on the circulation of silver pennies in/around the British Isles and its connections across the North Sea. The first paper will discuss the role of Anglo-Saxon coins as key currency around the Irish Sea. The second paper will also deal with the Irish Sea coinage, focusing on the imitations of Anglo-Saxon coins. The third paper will investigate the charter evidence to measure the circulation of silver pennies in Scotland. In addition to these papers, the fourth by Takahiro Narikawa, titled as "Church and the money economy in High Medieval Norway", will focus on the possible connection between the church and some evidences of 'foreign' coin circulations in 13th-century Norway.
