"Ancient and Medieval Monetary Technologies and Metrology - The Contribution of the Atomic and Nuclear Analyses"

Symposium held in Bucharest, Romania, May 3rd-6th 2007


The Romanian National History Museum announce the organization of the international symposium "Ancient and Medieval Monetary Technologies and Metrology - The Contribution of the Atomic and Nuclear Analyses", as a part of the ARCHAEOMET project, financed by the Romanian Ministry of the Education and Research. Such a symposium will be held for the first time in Romania and it is intended to be a stimulus for the development of numismatic and archaeometrical researches in Romania and the neighbouring countries. The local organizing committee will be pleased to meet a large number of colleagues working on similar topics in Bucharest.


The symposium intends to present the general progress made during the last years in the studies on the ancient and medieval coinage thanks to the atomic and nuclear analyses, as well as the most recent developments in the metrological studies in numismatics. The symposium will focus mainly on the ancient and medieval monetary metallurgy used by the mints located in South-Eastern and Central Europe, in a broader European context.
