    New Views on Roman Gold Coins Found in Britain

    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.

    Free admission.

    Reception to follow lecture. Limited complimentary parking at Broadway Garage, 7 Felton Street.

    To honor the memory of renowned numismatist and scholar Leo Mildenberg (1912–2001) and his years of friendship with Harvard University, a fund was established by his friends and colleagues and endowed in 2005 by his wife, Ilse Mildenberg-Seehausen.
