We're a theatre company founded in 2023 at Warwick, making fringe theatre with a focus on small-scale/DIY-aesthetic, accessible politics, and absolute nonsense.

Warwick Numismatic Day 2023 – Imitations of Ancient Coins and their Function

Ancient Numismatics, the study of ancient coinage, is a research strength of Warwick’s Department of Classics and Ancient History. The Department is an international hub in numismatics with three staff members, experts in the field, embedding their research in the wider context of Ancient History, Classical Archaeology and Ancient Economy.

The Warwick Numismatic Day has been an annual event since 2010, assembling specialists, including young researchers and students, as well as members of a wider audience, such as collectors, to share and discuss papers around topics on ancient Numismatics https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/classics/research/interests/numismatics/numismaticday/. After a two-year break due to the pandemic, this year’s workshop saw the return of the 11th Numismatic Day, dedicated to imitations of ancient coins and their functions https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/classics/research/money-and-medals/events/

This was the perfect opportunity to mark the move of the prestigious Money and Medals Network (MMN) from the British Museum to the Department in August 2022, an institution offering training and advice to c. 240 museums and other institutions in the UK holding coins in their collections. This time the two events were scheduled together with the Numismatics Day on the 16th June and the first MMN Training Day on the 15th June.
