Event description
This all-day symposium comprises a series of papers structured around topics with which Lord Stewartby was deeply engaged with.

About this Event

Lord Stewartby (1935-2018) was among the leading figures in British numismatic scholarship in the second half of the twentieth century, and published over two hundred papers. He was a major contributor both to the development of what became the Medieval European Coinage publication project at Cambridge and other widely regarded publications. His interests ranged across the Romano-British coinage of the London mint, Anglo-Saxon and Viking coinage, medieval English coinage as well as Scottish coinage, the latter being a field in which he was pre-eminent both as a collector and as a scholar.

Attendance by ticket only: £25 or free to full-time students.
