A talk by coins expert David Thorold
Tuesday 9th November 8 p.m.
Garden Room, Liston Hall, Marlow
Members £2.50, non members £3.50
David Thorold is the Keeper of Archaeology at Verulamium Museum and a renowned authority on coins. His talk will be a quick and entertaining dash from ancient coins to the development of modern currency in the 17th century.
David Thorold is the Keeper of Archaeology at Verulamium Museum in St Albans and has been the coin specialist there since 1993. David trains Museum curators on coin identification for the Society of Museum Archaeologists.
As well as being involved in several St Albans excavations, David keeps his hand in by identifying coins brought and sent to the museum from around the world. His main area of expertise is British coins and he will be happy to look at any coins brought in on the night (though the Museum Service can not offer valuations). He has co-written a children’s book on the Romans in Britain.
