Dr Andrew Woods, Curator of Numismatics, York Museums Trust, discusses the Wold Newton hoard, recently found and newly acquired by York Museums Trust

In this lecture organised by the Yorkshire Numismatic Society, Dr Andrew Woods, Curator of Numismatics, York Museums Trust, discusses the Wold Newton hoard, recently found and newly acquired by York Museums Trust. 

The hoard is one of the largest and best excavated coin hoards of the 'Tetrarchy' ever discovered in Britain, and was buried at a time when York had a central role in the history of the Roman Empire. This talk explores its discovery, conservation, contents and what it can tell us about coinage in the early fourth century.

Many thanks to the Yorkshire Numismatic Society and to Dr Andrew Woods for allowing us to film the lecture.
