10.30 A.M. - 4.30 P.M.
Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge

       The Indian Coinage Study Day organised annually by the Department of Coins and Medals of the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Oriental Numismatic Society this year will be on the theme of The Sultanate Coinages. It will coincide with the study visit of Dr Ejaz Hussain of the Visva-Bharati University to Cambridge, who will be working on this series.

       The speakers will include Ejaz Hussain (Bengal coinage), Shailendra Bhandare (derivative coinages of the Sultanate period), Stan Goron, Jan Lingen (Malwa coinage) and Nicholas Rhodes (Kashmir coinage). We also hope to entice some historians to talk on the historical/ economic background. We will be following the successful format of previous years, with papers of 30-40 minutes, and plenty of time for discussion. Everyone is welcome, but we must ask you to register in advance, so that we know how many people to expect.

       If you would like to attend, contribute a paper, or find out more, please contact Mark Blackburn or Elina Screen at the Fitzwilliam Museum, or see the Study Day webpage at http://www.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/coins/new.html. The Study Day itself is free, but will not include lunch.
