Numismatic Archaeology: Interpreting Coin Finds from Excavation Contexts

6:00pm to 7:00pm

Location: 

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street

What do the finds of coins in archaeological excavations tell us about the history of the use of the site?

Stahl is a recipient of the Medal of the Royal Numismatic Society.
