MONEY AND MEDALS TRAINING EVENTS
West Midlands MMN: Medieval coinage identification training day
There is still time to sign up to the Medieval coinage identification training day being held at the University of Warwick on the 31st of May from 10:00 until 16:00
The day, led by the British Museum’s Dr Barrie Cook and Dr Gareth Williams, will be comprised of four one-hour-long sessions covering early Medieval coinage in the morning followed by post Medieval coinage in the afternoon. There will also be a session on the documentation of Medieval coinage on a museum database and a handling session where attendees will be able to put their new identification skills to the test. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about identifying Medieval coins when they are brought in for identification by the public or for general cataloguing of museum collections.
This event is FREE to attend and open to anyone working or volunteering with museum numismatic collections.
Further details can be found here: http://www.moneyandmedals.org.uk/ and anyone wanting to sign up should contact Dr Stanley Ireland: S.Ireland@warwick.ac.uk
