Dr Rebecca Darley: What does the science mean? Interpreting metallurgic analysis of Byzantine gold coinage.'
This paper will discuss the methods and results of a study undertaken during the summer of 2015 into the composition of Byzantine gold coinage (c. 330-1092). It will present new findings and focus on the wider questions of how such data can be interpreted historically and on the potential risks and benefits of collaborations across hard sciences and humanities, and between universities, museums and industry
