UPCOMING MONEY & MEDALS TRAINING EVENTS
West Midlands Money and Medals Training Day
20th April, Department of Classics and Ancient History, University of Warwick
The Money and Medals Network will be returning to the West Midlands on the 20th of April 2016 with a new programme of training talks. This one-day event, to be held in the Humanities Building on the Warwick University campus, is a follow-up to the training day held at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery in 2013.
The programme of talks has now been finalised and will feature subjects such as the use of numismatics in education sessions, the documentation of coins and medals on a museum database and the conservation of coins in collections. The day will also include an introduction to commemorative medals and a practical session on numismatic pinning techniques.
This event is open to people working or volunteering with numismatics in West Midlands museums and other public institutions and is intended to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and expertise. It is free to attend.
It is hoped that a West Midlands numismatic network can be established during this introductory training day and as many museums as possible are encouraged to send representatives to take part in its creation and help decide subjects for future training sessions held in the region.
To book a place please contact Josie Brown, Centre Administrator for Classics and Ancient History at Warwick, whose email address is Josie.Brown@warwick.ac.uk
Can't make it but want to take part in the discussion?
If you are unable to attend but have questions for the speakers or ideas of numismatic training subjects to be focused on at future events, please email them to Henry Flynn whose email address is firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday the 15th of April.
