UPCOMING MONEY & MEDALS TRAINING EVENTS
Roman coinage identification training session, British Museum
Friday 27 November
The training will be led by Dr Sam Moorhead, the Portable Antiquities Scheme’s National Finds Advisor for Roman coins and is being held in conjunction with PASt Explorers and the Money and Medals Network. Sam will be introducing attendees to the identification of Roman coinage through presentations, giving advice on the use of printed and electronic resources for identification purposes and providing a practical session which will involve handling Roman coins.
This is an opportunity to learn about the identification of Roman coins with an expert in this field and may prove to be beneficial for cataloguing museum collections and responding to public enquiries. A few places are still available so if you would like to attend then please contact Henry Flynn at HFlynn@britishmuseum.org.
It is free to attend and open to anyone working with Roman coins in a museum or public institution.
