We are glad to announce that we’ve passed the 2,000th find in FLAME’s main database. All these 2,000 coin finds – excavations, hoards and single finds – include a few hundred thousand coins between them all. Every additional coin find in the database improves the image we have for the late antique economy. Let’s hope #3,000 comes soon!
Below: a visualization of all the coin finds in the database at the moment (each green dot is a find). We’re still working on ways to take into account the imbalances of find coverage in our analysis.
