  • Sir George Francis Hill, was perhaps best known as a numismatist, although his scholarly interests & accomplishments included a range of time periods & subjects. A classicist by training, Hill built his career at the British Museum's department of coins & medals. In his 43 years there he produced volumes on coins of antiquity; Greek history & art; coins, heraldry, & iconography of medieval & Renaissance Italy; & treasure troves. In 1931 Hill became the Museum's director & principal librarian, the first archaeologist to hold this post. His four-volume History of Cyprus (1940-52) ranged from Cyprus's earliest years to the 20th century, & became the standard text on the subject. It is a valuable resource for scholars of the country, of antiquity & of the Mediterranean world. Volume 2 commences Hill's investigation of the Frankish period (1192-1432), which he continues in Volume 3.
