The Framing Early Medieval Coinage Project Invitation to the first public workshop Saturday, March 28, 2015, Princeton University

posted in: Project Updates | 0
After two years of work, the Framing Coinage project has finished surveying the important changes in minting during the transition from the ancient to the medieval periods throughout Europe, North Africa and the Middle East (CE 325-c.725). These developments, which had major historical ramifications, have received little scholarly attention outside the specialized discipline of numismatics. In this workshop, we will present our findings from the first stage of the project (minting) and move on to discuss our approach to the second stage (circulation).
