FRIDAY JUNE 28 AT THE BRITISH ACADEMY, LORD STEWARTBY – THE NUMISMATIC LEGACY.

The 2019 Summer meeting is being held at the British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London, on Friday 28 June. This all day Symposium will consider the academic legacy of Lord Stewartby (1935-2018), a distinguished member of the Society.

This Symposium, sponsored by the British and Royal Numismatic Societies and the British Academy’s Sylloge of Coinage of the British Isles committee, will comprise a series of papers by leading figures who place the use of numismatic evidence at the forefront of historical and archaeological interpretation. Structured around topics with which Lord Stewartby was deeply engaged it will explore recent work which builds on his contributions to Numismatic scholarship.

Previously there has been a shortage of national forums for short research focused numismatic publications for contributions such as the discovery of a new die-link, or a slight permutation of an existing type, which in the past might have been put on record in Spink’s Numismatic Circular, or the Seaby Coin and Medal Bulletin, but which are too brief to warrant publication in a larger-scale print journal such as the British Numismatic Journal.

Established earlier this year, the John Casey Fund provides grants for research by individuals into coins, medals, tokens, jetons and paper money of the British Isles, the British Commonwealth and the territories that have been subject to British rule.

Financed from a generous bequest to the Society by the late John Casey (†2016), it is envisaged that two or three awards will be made annually. The first such award has now been granted to Richard Brickstock, for the analysis and publication of the Roman coin moulds from Fulford, York.

Applications are particularly welcomed from younger scholars enrolled with higher-education institutions, although applications from independent scholars and from other researchers will also be considered favourably.
