York Lecture 'The Wold Newton Hoard'

York Lecture: 2.30pm Friday 19th January 2018

Dr. Andrew R. Woods, The Wold Newton Hoard

This talk will discuss the Wold Newton hoard, recently found and newly acquired by York Museums Trust. The hoard is one of the largest and best excavated coin hoards of the 'Tetrarchy' ever discovered in Britain, and was buried at a time when York had a central role in the history of the Roman Empire. This talk will explore its discovery, conservation, contents and what it can tell us about coinage in the early fourth century.

Venue: The York Coin Fair, The Grandstand, York Racecourse, Tadcaster Rd, York, North Yorkshire YO23 1EX
