May 17, 2018 – The International Symposium in Early Medieval Coinage is already an institution when it comes to Medieval Coinage. This year’s SEMC takes place on 13th October 2018 and is again hosted by the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. The overall theme will be “England and the Wider World”. The provisional programme includes
- Chris Scull & Andy Woods: Current work on the Rendlesham Hoard
- Stewart Lyon & Hugh Pagan: Some issues in Northumbrian chronology
- Kelly Marie Clarke & Katie Howarth: ‘Pierced, looped and framed: the (re)use of coins in jewellery in seventh-century Anglo-Saxon England’
- Adrian Marsden & Arent Pol: the Norfolk hoard of Merovingian tremisses, Rory Naismith: ‘A Mantle of Silver: England and Western Europe c. 900-1100’
Registration for SEMS is open until 1st October. The only charge is £10 payable in cash on entry on Saturday towards the cost of morning and afternoon refreshments. Space is limited so potential participants are advised to book early. On the day of the event, prospects should assemble in the Fitzwilliam’s new foyer at 10:00am prompt and proceed directly to the basement Seminar Room for registration. At noon, lunch is to be had at the Graduate Centre.
The evening before the symposium is a social opportunity, where colleagues from every aspect of the subject meet – curators and collectors, detectorists and archaeologists, speakers and numismatists.
For registration, please contact Tony Abramson.
