The Barber Institute of Fine Arts
University of Birmingham, B15 2TS Birmingham, United Kingdom
Did you know that the Barber has one of the world's largest collections of coins? We're pretty proud of this, so we're having a whole day dedicated to our coins!
Hear a range of papers from established academics and students — covering 8th-century iconoclasts, mediaeval divine images and the antique Persian world, to Byzantine coin finds in India and Sri Lanka — demonstrating the wealth of ideas developed from our coin collection.
Then, view and handle up to five coins featured in each paper, and enjoy a guided tour of the current exhibition 'Excavating Empire'. (http://bit.ly/2jmNNZs)
