New Views on Roman Gold Coins Found in Britain
April 26, 2012
Roger Bland, Head of Portable Antiquities and Treasure, The British Museum
This talk draws from a recent project to catalogue all finds of Roman and early Byzantine gold coins from Britain. The study reveals that Britain was not the poor province on the edge of the Roman Empire it was once thought to be. The speaker will highlight some of the most spectacular finds and new discoveries.
