International Biennial Symposia in Early Medieval Coinage
The initial scope has been expanded from early Anglo-Saxon into the Viking period in order to give greater capture of subject matter and audience. The expansion can
continue as long as it doesn’t impinge too much on the subject matter of the British Numismatic Journal. SiEMC can be differentiated from the BNJ by being an attractive,
accessible and well-illustrated offering, bridging the gaps between collector and numismatist, detectorist and archaeologist, art and economic historian.
To this end, the symposia and publications are mutually supportive and it is important to promote continuity and momentum in both the more academic (numismatic) sphere and the more populist (collecting) market.
