Expertise in Medieval European Numismatics (c1050-1550)

There are major collections of medieval coins in the British Museum, the National Museums of Scotland and Wales, the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge and the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, the Hunterian Museum in Glasgow, Norwich Castle Museum and the Yorkshire Museum. Many other museums have significant collections of medieval coins, most of which are easily available via the Sylloge of Coins of the British Isles (available online). Curatorial specialists in medieval numismatics are based at the three national museums and at the Fitzwilliam, Ashmolean and Hunterian Museums. Finds of medieval coins are recorded by the Fitzwilliam Museum’s Corpus of Early Medieval Coin Finds (EMC) and by the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS), which also provides online information about medieval coinage.
