Boklansering - Divina Moneta
I forbindelse med det VIII Nordiske numismatiske forskersymposium inviterer vi til boklansering og gjesteforelesing.
Gratis adgang og åpent for alle
Kl 16-16:45 Boklansering:
Nanouschka Myrberg Bjurström og Gitte Tarnow Ingvardson:
Divina Moneta. Coins in Religion and Ritual. Oxford-New York: Routledge, 2018.
Interdisciplinary discussions organised around three themes: Coin deposit and ritual practice, the coin as economic object and divine mediator, and the value and meaning of coin offering. Although focusing on the medieval period in Western Europe, the book includes instructive cases from the Roman period until today. The collection brings together well-established and emerging scholars from archaeology, art history, ethnology, history and numismatics.
Presentasjoner av boken på nordisk språk.
Kl 17:00 Gjesteforelesning:
Dr. Richard Kelleher, Assistant keeper, Coins & Medals, Fitzwilliam Museum, University of Cambridge:
'Mundane or extraordinary? Coin finds from the medieval English countryside'
Dr Kelleher completed his PhD in 2012 on the use of coins in medieval England and Wales, which used metal detected material as a source for the first time. He joined the Fitzwilliam Museum in 2013 and is Assistant Keeper of the museum’s medieval and modern coins, medals, tokens and banknotes. He was awarded the British Numismatic Society’s Blunt Prize in 2014.
