April 27, 2017 – On May 15, 2017 the Department of Coins and Medals at the British Museum will hold the Money and Medals Network Training Day on the identification of Medieval coinage from 10:00 to 16:00. This free one-day event will be held in the Coins and Medals Department at the British Museum and is open to anyone working or volunteering with Medieval coins in UK museums and other public institutions.
The day will be run by two curators of Medieval coinage at the British Museum, Dr Barrie Cook and Dr Gareth Williams, and will give attendees the chance to learn some identification skills as well as how to approach the documentation of Medieval coins on a museum database.
More details will be available soon, and to book your place please email Henry Flynn at the British Museum directly. Places are strictly limited due to the size of the training room available so please book early to avoid disappointment.
For colleagues working in museums in the West Midlands, please note that a very similar event will be held for the West Midlands Numismatic Network in 2017, more details available soon.
You can follow the project on Twitter.
