 PhD Studentship: coin hoards & the Iron Age-Roman transition
Posted by stj3 at Mar 01, 2019 04:26 PM | Permalink
3 Year CDA (AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award) PhD Studentship available for September 2019. Project: The Iron Age to Roman Transition in Britain from the Perspective of Coin Hoards

Some of the thousands of Iron Age and Roman coins found at Hallaton.

We are looking for an excellent, highly promising and appropriately qualified student who will embrace the opportunity to bring together academic research with experience and training in a leading British museum. We want to encourage the widest range of potential students to study for a CDP studentship and are committed to welcoming students from different backgrounds to apply for our studentships. NB. All applicants must meet the AHRC’s academic criteria and residency requirements.

 

Project Title: The Iron Age to Roman Transition in Britain from the Perspective of Coin Hoards

Project Description: The later Iron Age in Britain is a period of social change, as clearly evidenced in alterations in technologies and material culture. This is also the period in which the first coins appear, imported from Gallic neighbours across the Channel, and later minted locally across southern Britain; such material provides a major source of information on Iron Age society, trade, religious beliefs, and continental contacts. Many aspects of Iron Age coinage are still poorly understood, but they combine aspects of ‘money’ since they have standardized weight and metal composition; they exhibit complex and localized iconography; and they are generally deposited in careful ways, probably as part of a broad ‘sacrificial’ economy. This PhD studentship will take as its focus this last aspect, examining and interpreting hoards deposited in a time of major cultural change, namely the late Iron Age to Roman transition in Britain. The studentship is a collaborative venture between the University of Leicester and the Ashmolean Museum at the University of Oxford.
