Numismatic Archaeology: Interpreting Coin Finds from Excavation Contexts

6:00pm to 7:00pm

Location: 

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street, Cambridge MA

In this lecture, Alan Stahl, curator of numismatics and lecturer in the Departments of Art and Archaeology, Classics, and History at Princeton University, will provide examples from ancient, Islamic, Byzantine, and medieval contexts in Syria, Asia Minor, Cyprus, and the New World to illustrate the potential—and the perils—of deducing chronology, habitation history, and monetary circulation from coin finds. Stahl is a recipient of the Medal of the Royal Numismatic Society.
