Andrew Burnett was presented with a festschrift, Studies in Ancient Coinage in Honour of Andrew Burnett, at the International Numismatic Conference in Taormina, Sicily recently.

Andrew, who is currently Honorary Professor of the Institute of Archaeology and former Deputy Director of the British Museum, is generally recognised as the foremost exponent of the study of ancient coinage of his generation. He completed his PhD at the Institute of Archaeology, supervised by Richard Reece, who also contributed to the volume.

The festschrift was presented to him by the co-editor Roger Bland, himself Honorary Lecturer at the Institute.

There will be a celebration of the book at the Institute in October. Further details to follow.
