We're all about numismatic education, but I missed the announcement for the British Museum Numismatics summer school this year - it took place in July. Sorry! But potential
students should be mindful and check in with them for more details in March/April next year. -Editor
The Department of Coins and Medals will host a two week summer school which will cover Classical numismatics in the first week and Medieval numismatics in the second
week. This course is for newcomers to numismatics, or for those with a basic knowledge as it aims to give students the tools to apply numismatics to their studies.
The Classical week will give a thorough introduction to Greek and Roman numismatics from the archaic to late Roman periods. The Medieval week will cover early Medieval Europe
and the successors of the Roman Empire through to the High and later Middle Ages (c. 600-1550). Both weeks offer lectures and practical sessions, a visit to another institution
and the chance to see the British Museum’s special exhibition. These activities allow students to both handle objects and gain insight into how the Museum looks after and displays
its collection. Links to the 2017 summer school timetable can be found on this page, and summer school 2018 will follow a similar format.
The Summer School is open to all undergraduate and graduate students and each week has a capacity for 10 students, so places are limited. There are no fees for this course and
free accommodation and breakfast is provided at a local UCL hall of residence. Applicants are responsible for organising their own travel arrangements and any documentation (e.g.
visa), but will be entitled to claim a bursary of up to £100 for these expenses.
