Ancients Conference, Arts Centre, Christchurch - 2-3 July 2022

2 July 2022 @ 9:00 am - 22 April 2022 @ 9:57 pm

The Arts Centre, Christchurch

The RNSNZ and the Classics Department of the University of Canterbury, with support from Canterbury Museum, Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities and Ravenscar House Museum, are organising a mini-conference devoted to the broad theme of ancient coinage. It will be held in the Arts Centre, Ōtautahi - Christchurch on 2-3 July 2022.

We expect this to be a hybrid event with both face to face (F2F) and virtual presentations. Presenters will nominate whether they wish to present F2F or virtually. F2F presenters will present live. Virtual presenters will pre-record their presentations and will also be invited to participate in Q&A during the conference.

The proposed programme is for a maximum of ten presentations on Saturday 2 July with time for attendees to view the Teece Museum collection and also some of the ancient coins on loan to the Canterbury University Classics Department from the Canterbury Museum collection, before an informal dinner on Saturday evening to be followed by a visit on Sunday 3 July to the private art and antiquities collection of Susan and Jim Wakefield in Ravenscar House Museum (which is administered by Canterbury Museum).
