Coin hoarding in medieval Europe: new video!

As part of Coin Collecting Magazine’s virtual Festival of Coins (September to October 2020), I recently made a short video exploring the reasons behind the assembly and deposition of coin hoards in the middle ages. It’s now available online in full, so if you’ve got some time to spare, why not check it out? Click this link to view.

New publications – September 2020

New publications alert!

I have two articles in the 2020 British Numismatic Journal, the annual journal of the British Numismatic Society. The first article discusses three late medieval and Tudor hoards from Greater London. The second, co-written with Eleanor Ghey from the British Museum, gives a round-up of recent coin hoards reported under the Treasure Act and Treasure Trove laws. Why not check them out? To purchase a copy, get in touch with the Society via their website.
