Uncovering Numismatics

Uncovering Numismatics

William Bubelis, assistant professor of classics at Washington University in St. Louis, introduces us to the exciting field of numismatics. What is numismatics? Well, we had the same question. Essentially, numismatics focuses on coins and currency. Professor Bubelis explains how coins can reveal unique and important information about the ancient cultures from which they came. He also explores the origins of counterfeiting and considers objects people might not normally consider as currency. There is also a short accompanying video on our website, which will be released on 12/19/13. Visit: https://thought.artsci.wustl.edu/podcasts/uncovering-numismatic
