FLAME covered in the Kalkas journal

FLAME is very excited to have been featured in a recent issue of Kalkas, a journal that deals primarily with the history of the Gargano region of Italy. Their website describes the journal’s ambit as including the “prehistory, history, archaeology, numismatic materials, art history, as well as the landscape, agricultural, and environmental history of the Gargano area and of southern Italy.” Given this remarkable breadth, we are therefore very happy that they thought to include a feature on the FLAME project, which includes coin finds from this region. It is our hope that FLAME will advance numismatic history in regions like Gargano, allowing scholars to put regional coin finds quickly and securely into a larger Mediterranean and even global context.
