In this talk Dr Richard Kelleher, Senior Curator of Medieval and Modern Money at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, will provide an illustrated overview of coinage in medieval England from the Norman Conquest to the end of the Plantagenet dynasty in 1485. The talk will provide guidance in how to identify medieval coins, the basics of production and circulation, highlight the importance of single finds and hoards, and introduce how medieval coins are used as a tool for research.

Although this first talk covers just the very basics, we have more planned ahead which will cover different numismatic topics and help build up a numismatic repertoire of skills.
